The STEPP Program hosts an information session for prospective students and families approximately once per month. These events provide an opportunity to learn about the program's supports and services, have your questions answered by the staff, and meet some current students in STEPP. Please click here for a flyer with more details about these events.
Please note that these small-group information sessions replace the individual visits that STEPP previously offered to prospective students and families. Unfortunately, due to the high demand for individual meetings and STEPP's small staff, we are no longer able to offer one-on-one informational meetings.

The STEPP Program welcomed the 2016 Cohort and their parents to ECU the week of August 15 with our annual Boot Camp. Boot Camp is designed to strengthen the transition into the freshman year through early move-in, information sessions, and a challenge course for the students. Best wishes to our newest Pirates!
The STEPP Program's Advisory Board selected our 2017 cohort in August of 2016, and notifications of admission decisions were mailed to all applicants during the mid-August. A waiting list has also been established.
Interested students who are graduating from high school in 2017 are encouraged to pursue other options for the 2017-2018 school year. Applications for the 2018 cohort will be posted on our website in early 2017, and the deadline for Fall 2018 admission to STEPP will be May 15, 2017.
