Congratulations on your acceptance to ECU! You will find that ECU is a warm and friendly campus with faculty and staff who are anxious to assist you in achieving your academic goals. We have prepared an orientation program to assist you with the transition to the ECU community. You will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor, attend academic sessions, take placement tests, and register for your classes.

Information on New Student Orientation for students admitted to ECU for Summer or Fall 2014 will be available later in the Spring 2014 semester.

The New Student Orientation Program is designed to:

  • Academically prepare you for the fall semester through placement testing, meeting with an advisor, and registering for fall classes.
  • Make you aware of important academic rules and regulations.
  • Introduce student life and involvement.
  • Provide a taste of what college life at ECU is like.
  • Help you to learn your way around campus.
  • Let you meet your fellow Pirates!
