Freshman Admitted Student Checklist
Now that you have been admitted, there are several important steps for enrollment that must be completed in the checklist below:
ONCE YOU’RE ACCEPTED
❏ Set up your Pirate ID and e-mail - As an incoming East Carolina student, you will have access to a variety of helpful technology resources. You have already received your Pirate ID, ECU ID, e-mail address, and instructions on how to create your secure passphrase in your initial acceptance letter.
Download and follow the instructions to set up your account.
❏ Schedule a campus visit - If you have not already done so, we highly encourage you to join us for a campus visit. This is a great way to see first-hand what ECU has to offer. You can arrange a campus tour and information session through the admissions office, or plan to attend one of our Open House programs.
Register online at Pirate Port. Watch a video to get a glimpse of what a campus tour is all about.
❏ Apply for financial aid - Make sure to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form as soon as possible. This will determine your eligibility for grants, loans, work-study, and other financial aid programs. Financial Aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage all fall Freshmen to complete your FAFSA by February 15th, or as soon as possible thereafter.
Download and submit your completed FAFSA form, and use ECU's FAFSA code: 002923.
