Pirates Aboard 2018

Check out this great recap from Pirates Aboard 2017

On Saturday, March 24, 2018, the entire campus community will be all hands on deck for our Pirates Aboard! Admitted Student Day. 

This full day of sessions includes extensive time spent with your intended major; updates from financial aid, housing, dining, and student life; campus tours; and an opportunity to visit our different styles of residence halls. All parents are invited to attend a special session created just for them. Additionally, sessions specifically tailored for transfer students will also be available. 

This is your opportunity to connect with your future classmates and professors while also learning about the organizations and services we have at East Carolina. 

Registration is by invitation only. Admitted students will receive registration information in their personal (non-ECU) email, as well as a postcard invitation.

*When registering for admitted student events, please use the email address that you included on your application. This will ensure that you are able to log in and register properly.  If you are unable to log into the account that you previously created or cannot locate your event registration invitation, please email us at  


Information regarding the day's schedule, parking information, and lunch options will be provided in January.
