Eastfield College, located in Mesquite, TX, is a two-year college located in a suburban environment outside of Plano. EFC’s enrollment policy is considered “public”, meaning the school ensures a 100% acceptance rate.

Academic programs and majors at Eastfield College include business management, communications, computer and information systems, security and protective services, visual and performing arts, public administration, as well as liberal arts.

Prospective students can earn associate degrees in these subjects and more, and certificate programs are also offered, all for a low cost, competitive in state tuition rate of under $2,500 per year.

Lacking dormitories, EFC is a commute-only campus. This will likely prove beneficial for older students and other potential students with responsibilities outside of classes, such as those with jobs and/or young children.  Course scheduling at Eastfield College takes this into consideration, making the campus an excellent choice for part-time students.
