Once admitted, there are several steps that must be completed in order to enroll in classes. The earlier you apply and complete the necessary steps to enroll, the more course options will be available to you. Applicants offered admission must complete the following steps to enroll in classes:
- Pay the enrollment deposit to secure your spot.
- Complete the online orientation (on-campus students only).
- Schedule an appointment (in-person or via phone) with an ECU Academic Advisor who will review your transcript(s), recommend appropriate coursework, and provide your registration code.
- Register for courses according to the date provided by your ECU Advisor.
The Residency Determination Service (RDS) has been established by the North Carolina State Legislature as the centralized service for determining residency for students. If you are an undergraduate student applying for admission and claiming in-state residency for tuition purposes, you must visit www.NCresidency.org to verify your residency. If you've already completed the residency verification process and obtained your Residency Certification Number (RCN), you can enter your RCN when filling out our application. If you do not already have your RCN, you may submit your application and then come back and enter your RCN once you have it. It is your responsibility to complete the Residency Determination Process in a timely manner. Your residency status determines your cost of tuition and eligibility for North Carolina-supported financial aid.
- Only freshmen applicants are eligible for consideration for the Honors College, EC Scholars, and Early Assurance admission opportunities.
- Admission to selective majors such as Nursing and Engineering may be affected by which application you select.
- Many university-awarded scholarships are reserved for freshmen applicants.
- On-campus housing for transfer students is limited and not guaranteed.
- Transfer applicants who have earned an Associate Degree are not required to submit standardized test scores.
By applying as a freshman and also submitting your college transcript, we can consider both your high school academic work and test scores as well as your college courses and grades. We will weigh both as we make an admission decision.
All ECU academic programs prepare students to sit for applicable licensure in North Carolina. In order to comply with U.S. Department of Education regulations regarding distance education and professional licensure, ECU is required to make the following disclosure with respect to professional licensure outside the state of North Carolina. ECU cannot confirm whether a particular program meets requirements for professional licensure outside of the State of North Carolina. Please contact applicable licensure board(s) in any state you may want to pursue licensure prior to beginning the academic program in order to determine whether the program meets licensure requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm program eligibility for licensure in any state outside North Carolina.
Admission of applicants outside the State of North Carolina to an online degree, certificate, 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.
