Conference allocations and division between teams and individuals are posted to the ECCC website and [[ECCC.MailingList | mailing list]] at the start of each season.
Lists of qualifying riders are similarly posted immediately after the conference season championship (Easterns). To participate at nationals, riders must have their school registrar complete a [[http://usacycling.org/news/user/story.php?id=6574 | form verifying their full-time status]], and should budget some time to have this done.

Teams and riders interested in participating at nationals are strongly encouraged to join the [[ECCC.MailingList | conference mailing list]]. This is the best place to get timely updates and clarifications.

More general information and pointers to schedules, venues, and registration are available on the [[http://usacycling.org/collegiate | USAC Collegiate website]]
