Here's a sneak peek of some of the things you'll discover when you visit East Carolina University in person.
Prepare for your future: join the Pirate Nation with Pirate Promise. ECU extends an invitation to participate from your community college before you graduate and transfer. Pirate Promise is the starting point for full-time community college students to attend special events, get advising and have support as you transfer to ECU.
Students must be enrolling/enrolled at a partner community college in an Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Engineering (AE) or Associates of Sciences (AS) degree program and complete with a minimum GPA of 2.5.
By participating you will have a seamless degree-completion pathway to graduation at ECU.
Apply for the ECU Pirate Promise program at the same time you apply to your community college or see your admissions office if you are already enrolled at a participating college. Click here for the ECU Pirate Promise application.

“Our most fundamental goal is to make college attendance a far less daunting endeavor for these students who might not think that going to college is within their reach. In particular we want these students to understand that the community college/university pathway is very cost effective and to ensure that the transfer from the community college to the university is relatively seamless.”
—ECU Provost Dr. Ron Mitchelson
