Before being admitted to ECC, Koch successfully completed the Pathways to Success Pre-Collegiate Program. Pathways offers free GED classes and pre-collegiate math and English classes to better prepare students for college challenges, increasing their chances of success.

 

The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence honors State University of New York students who have best demonstrated and been recognized for their integration of academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, which may include leadership, campus involvement, athletics, career achievement, community service or creative and performing arts.
