Transfer Admission Guidelines

All transfer students must:

Important Notice to Residents Outside of North Carolina

Admission of applicants outside the State of North Carolina to an online degree, certificate or individual online course offered by East Carolina University, is dependent on ECU's ability to secure authorization from the applicant's state of residence, if such authorization is required. 

Due to evolving changes in higher education regulations, ECU will no longer be able to offer distance education online programs or courses for students residing in Massachusetts, Minnesota and Maryland. We are also unable to offer distance education online programs or courses to students residing in Ohio, except for those taking courses to pursue ECU's Nursing – MSN – Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program, and in Alabama, except for students taking courses to pursue ECU's MBA and MS – Security Studies Programs.  For the most current list of states, visit this link http://eai.ecu.edu/states.  ECU continues to work with state authorities to allow students in these states who are currently enrolled in an ECU online or certificate program to complete their degree. 

Additionally, students enrolled in programs or courses that require internships or supervised clinical placements will be unable to complete these activities in the state listed. 

Because authorization is an evolving area, please check this site again for the latest statement from ECU. 

For questions or concerns specific to the state authorization process,contact us at destateauth@ecu.edu.
