Craven Community College and East Carolina University, as part of our commitment to serve the military communities in North Carolina, bring the quality of two of the nation's leading higher education systems to the doorsteps of MCAS Cherry Point.
On-line degree programs allow service members like yourself and your dependents to continue studies wherever you may be located. This affords you the freedom to achieve your academic goals while meeting the responsibilities of a career and family. The faculty members who teach these courses are the same professors that teach the courses on the campus. Distance education students get a broad perspective by being in classes with other students from all walks of life. We understand that duty comes first and deployments and transfers are part of everyday life in the military.
The State of North Carolina offers In-State tuition to Marines and their immediate families who qualify for admission to ECU while you are an active member of the armed services and stationed in North Carolina. In the event the active duty member of the armed services is reassigned outside of North Carolina, In-State tuition is applicable as long as the service member is continuously enrolled in the institution and academic program in which he or she was enrolled at the time of the reassignment. For information about the In-State tuition application, click here.
Personnel are available to assist you with all your educational needs from beginning a two year associate degree at CCC to completing a four year baccalaureate degree or graduate degree at ECU.
