Students who are accepted to the Honors College will receive a scholarship equal to the level of in-state tuition. If the cost of in-state tuition should increase while attending East Carolina University, the value of the scholarship will continue to match the actual cost. Students admitted from outside the state of North Carolina will receive the same award - in the amount of in-state tuition - which can be applied toward the overall cost of out-of-state tuition. The scholarship is processed by the Office of Student Financial Aid. Scholarship support comes from both public and private sources. The Honors College is constantly engaged in work to expand the scholarship support available to all of our students.
The Honors College scholarship is renewable for a maximum term of eight semesters of undergraduate work, provided students remain in good standing with the Honors College. The scholarship may be stacked on top of many other awards, including those connected with EC Scholars, Business Scholars, Humanities Scholars, and Music Scholars Programs. These scholarships may be stacked so long as the total aid does not exceed the cost of attendance as defined by the Office of Student Financial Aid.
Honors College students who earn a baccalaureate degree
before the eighth semester of the scholarship may pursue post-baccalaureate
study at East Carolina University using the remaining scholarship semester[s]
under the same rules and conditions as undergraduates. The value of the
scholarship will remain equal to the cost of in-state undergraduate tuition.
Students intending to utilize the scholarship for post-baccalaureate study are
required to notify Associate Dean Kevin Baxter with an e-mail that contains the
program of study and the start date for the program.
