Whether students want to improve job skills, transfer to a four-year institution, or complete a credential and enter the workforce, Edgecombe Community College provides the edge to help students succeed.

With campuses in Tarboro and Rocky Mount, the College offers education and training that is both relevant and life enhancing. First-rate programs in health care, business and industry, and arts and sciences provide practical skills and enable graduates to excel in their careers, homes, and communities.

Dr. Greg McLeod became the College’s fifth president in August 2018. Under his leadership, the College has added an evening program in Ophthalmic Medical Assistant, developed with input from local clinicians.

The planned location of Corning and Triangle Tire in Edgecombe County has led to a heightened commitment and focus on industrial programs at the College. Construction is under way on the Center for Innovation and the Kingsboro Training Center. These state-of-the-art facilities will enable the College to better develop and sustain the skilled workforce required by current and future industry.
