Most Helpful Review for El Centro College

Registration dates and class schedules are on the website. Show up early for registration. Show up early if you need to use the advising center. New students MUST use the advising center to sign up for classes, so go early in the morning and expect a little bit of a wait. If you are applying to the Nursing program, read everything given to you. It's a very competitive program, so be prepared to make all A's and B's and be serious about school.

    There is truly a sense of community in the mid-rise building among the skyscrapers downtown. You may feel lost in the shuffle of all the business people walking the streets of downtown but that all changes when you walk into El Centro. This college tries and successfully becomes a great foundation for all who seek valuable and applicable knowledge in the real world.

    Overall, I enjoyed my experiences at this college. They have a variety of classes which you can take online or on campus. The teachers are flexible. My Drama teacher gave me some encouraging words the first day of class.To take in all of what you want If you are dedicated and work hard you will do good and ace all goals. My advice for prospective students would be that it is definitely a good choice. It is cheaper and really flexible with your schedule. The school also gives FREE DART passes for El Centro students.
