    Overall, for what you pay in tuition it's a great option school. It has great transfer assistance and pretty much has all the classes needed to transfer to anywhere you'd like. The nursing program at EACC is fantastic, so if nursing is your major this school is a good starting point.

    The classes are very affordable, and with the help of a Pell grant, or other financial aid, it is very cheap to get your education here.
