The Honors College wait list application process is open to any prospective undergraduate student who has been accepted to East Carolina University prior to March 1. The online application is available on this page beginning February 15 and through March 14. Strongest consideration will be directed to those students who meet Honors College minimum eligibility criteria (see Application Process). Students who have already applied to the Honors College and were initially denied admission are automatically added to the Honors College wait list.
The Honors College wait list is consulted to fill the Honors College entering class if the incoming class falls below the Honors College enrollment goal. The Honors College wait list is not connected with the EC Scholars, Business Scholars or Early Assurance Program selection processes.
The Honors College will confirm receipt of a completed Honors College wait list application by e-mail upon receipt of both the online application and the required peer letter of recommendation. Following this electronic confirmation, the Honors College will only communicate with wait list applicants in the event of an updated admissions status with the Honors College. These decisions will be made on a rolling basis with all final decisions occurring by August 1.
