Tartar Message

November 28, 2018

The 2019 winter term and spring semester are just around the corner! Compton College's winter term begins January 3, 2019 and the spring semester begins February 9, 2019. Students are encouraged to check MyECC regularly for registration appointment information.

There are some exciting events happening on campus in December including the Student Health Center Ribbon Cutting on December 11, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. to welcome Compton College's new partnership with St. John's Well Child & Family Center as our new health care services provider.

Authorization and Consent to Release Educational Records
Current Compton College students were sent an email last month asking them to submit an online Release Form allowing El Camino College to transfer educational, student and financial aid records to the Admissions and Records Office at Compton College. The release form will allow El Camino College to transfer students' records directly to Compton College without requesting a transcript.

By submitting the release form, you will not have to re-apply to Compton College in order to continue taking classes on this campus. Compton College counselors and the Admissions and Records Office will have access to your academic history, making it easier to assist you as you progress through your academic program.

The form is available online here, and paper forms are available in the Admissions and Records Office at both Compton College and El Camino College.

If you have already submitted the request form, you do not need to do anything else at this time.

Questions? Visit the Compton College Admissions and Records Office or send an email to admissions@compton.edu.

Compton College Transition
The Compton Community College District (CCCD) Board of Trustees approved Resolution No. 10-16-2018A at its October 16, 2018 meeting terminating the partnership agreement between the Compton Community College and El Camino Community College districts. Effective June 7, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. Compton College will operate as an independent college under the authority of the CCCD Board of Trustees.

As Compton College completes the process to become an accredited college under the governing authority of the CCCD by summer 2019, please be assured that multiple measures are underway to ensure a smooth transition for students. We anticipate a seamless continuation of all academic and support programs provided to our students as Compton College becomes a fully independent college, separate from the El Camino Community College District.
