General Information

ECU faculty and staff who are not U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents ("Green Card holders" or "resident aliens") in the U.S. must have permission from the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) to remain and work in the United States. This permission comes in various forms of immigration classifications and all non-citizens and non-immigrants must establish and maintain a valid immigration status for ECU employment. New faculty will already have addressed this employment requirement upon receiving their ECU hire letter. Those with questions, however, should contact the ECU Director of Immigration Services, Brian Meyerhoeffer, at 252-737-4769 or
