Acceptance to EC Macomb


Students qualify for admission based on completion of the application process, performance record, placement test results and application review.

Each participating high school allocates seats to the ECM. If student interest exceeds available space, enrollment will be determined by a lottery of qualified applicants from each participating high school. Each high school will notify applicants of the date/place/time of the lottery and lottery results.

Parent Notification Letters Regarding Student Applicant Status

When scoring of the ECM Admission Test is completed and applications have been reviewed, the following notifications will be made:

  • Parents will be notified if their student does not qualify for the ECM.
      
  • Parents will be notified if their student qualifies, but needs additional assistance prior to the start of the school year.
      
  • Parents will be notified if their student qualifies. The notification letter will request a response in writing by a certain date indicating an acceptance of the invitation to attend the ECM. This will reserve the student’s seat for attendance at the ECM in the upcoming school year.
      
  • If the number of qualified students exceeds available space, enrollment will be determined by both lottery and application review. Based upon lottery results, parents of students who qualify will receive a letter of acceptance with a request for a response in writing by a certain date indicating an acceptance of the invitation to attend the ECM. This will reserve the student’s seat for attendance at the ECM in the upcoming school year.
      
  • Parents of qualified students who are placed on a waitlist after the lottery will be notified as openings become available.
