Readmission Guidelines

All readmit students must:

  • Submit an online application
  • Pay the $70 nonrefundable application fee at the time of application
  • If any college coursework was attempted since last being enrolled at ECU, official transcripts from each individual college/university attended must be submitted.  The transcript(s) must indicate that a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher  has been earned.  Transfer credits will be evaluated according to university policy

Note:  Students with departmental "hold tags" on their records (i.e. Cashier, Parking, Judicial, etc.) must contact those specific departments for instructions on having the hold removed.  Readmission applications will not be processed for students with active holds.

Following Suspension

Students must apply for readmission to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to the application deadline.  Eligibility to apply for readmission after suspension does not guarantee acceptance, as the university must adhere to enrollment restrictions.

Following an initial suspension of one semester and readmission to the university on academic probation, students who fail to meet their retention standard while on probation will be suspended from the university for two semesters.  Earning at least a 2.5 GPA on a minimum of 12 attempted hours in the current probationary semester or summer terms will enable continued enrollment.

Following the second suspension and readmission to the university on academic probation, students who fail to meet the required GPA will be suspended from the university for an indefinite period of time, not less than three academic years.  A concession will be made for earning a 2.5 cumulative GPA on a minimum of 12 attempted hours in the current probationary semester or summer school.

Forgiveness Policy

Former East Carolina University students who have not been enrolled at ECU for a minimum of two consecutive academic years (four semesters, summer sessions excluded) may request readmission under the Forgiveness Policy. Such requests must be submitted on the application for readmission according to application deadline dates as specified above. Students who have been enrolled at another regionally accredited college or university since their last enrollment at East Carolina University must submit to the Office of Admissions official transcripts indicating that a minimum cumulative 2.5 average has been earned in all transferable courses attempted.

Important Note

Admission of applicants residing outside the State of North Carolina to an online degree, certificate program 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 recent changes in higher education regulations, ECU will no longer be able to offer online programs or courses for students residing in Alabama, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Maryland.  ECU will 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.

For questions specific to the state authorization process, call 252/737-1268 or email destateauth@ecu.edu.
