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.
