ECITA Update

Butler Community College

It’s hard to believe that there is only 5 weeks left until the end of this semester. The ECITA students have been busy and growing rapidly within the short time they have been with us at Butler.

They have had some great experiences and speakers (pictured below) that have shared with them everything from the importance of being a personable person to the importance of networking and internship opportunities.

Finals week at Butler is the week of December 8th-12th. ECITA students last day of fall classes will be Thursday, December 11th. Courses for the spring semester will commence on Tuesday, January 20th.

Spring 2015 Enrollment

  • This Friday, November 13th students will have a representative from our Butler Advising department going over Butler associates degree and four-year university transfer requirements.

  • ECITA students will be enrolling for Spring 2015 courses, next Friday, November 21st during their ECITA class time.

  • Students will be eligible to enroll in non-ECITA courses for summer during enrollment on Friday, November 21st.

  • If students are interested in taking non-ECITA courses during the summer they have been encouraged to follow-up with the ECITA Director and high school counselors so that we can confirm test scores meet placement guidelines for courses.

  • Students may need to retake placement exams in order to be eligible for non-ECITA courses.

  • Students will need a new high school release form on file for the 2015-2016 school year in order to be eligible to take summer courses. The release may be found at the following link:
