El Camino College is a public institution dedicated to providing excellent comprehensive educational programs and services that promote student learning and success in collaboration with its diverse communities.

In the year 1946, after strong recommendations by a consulting team to establish a two-year college in the Inglewood-South Bay area, the governing boards of the Centinela Valley, Redondo, Inglewood, and El Segundo districts decided to create of a junior college. Torrance soon joined the newly chartered group, and the El Camino Community College District was officially established on July 1, 1947. The college is situated on a beautiful and spacious 126-acre campus near Torrance, California.

ECC strives to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Students seeking financial assistance should first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and receive SAR to determine your eligibility.

ECC federal school code is 001197. A student will also need to apply for an FSA ID as part of this application process.
