Welcome to E-LECT!

We know what higher education means to you and your family. We also know that quality child care and early childhood programs depend on well-trained professionals. Thirteen of Minnesota's Community and Technical Colleges are working together for you.

Through E-LECT (e-learning for early childhood teachers), we’re now offering our high quality credit-based child development courses, certificate, diploma, and A.S. and A.A.S. degree online. Yes, that is correct! While you may not be able to take all the courses from one institution, you can select courses from other sister institutions to complete your entire award in a timely manner. Take courses anytime, anywhere. Forget late nights on campus, transportation and parking headaches, trying to juggle family responsibilities, or reducing your work hours. You always knew you could do it! You just didn't know when or how. With E-LECT, a college education is as close as your computer. Just explore the various areas of the website to learn more about us. Select a home campus and get started! So go ahead, graduate!
