The Graduate School's orientation program is designed to complement your academic department's orientation and ease your transition to graduate school and East Carolina University. Concurrent sessions will be held in the morning covering essential information related to academic regulations and policies; the registration, tuition/fee payment, and financial aid processes at ECU; an introduction to ECU's electronic resources for students; and pre-requisite steps for beginning research. In addition, a session will be led by graduate students offering tips for succeeding in graduate studies at ECU. In the afternoon, an Academic and Student Life Resource Fair will provide you the opportunity to talk one-on-one with representatives from various student life and academic resource offices. A picnic lunch will be provided at noon.

Email announcements will be sent to all newly admitted students via their ECU Outlook account in early June with additional program and parking information.
