STEPP Program Open Houses - Information Sessions for Prospective Students and Families

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. Visit our Open House page for more details and to register. 

2019 Cohort Admissions

Applications for the 2019 cohort of the STEPP Program have been posted! Completed application packets must be postmarked by May 15, 2018 to be considered on time.  


2018 Cohort Selection

The STEPP Program's Advisory Board selected our 2018 cohort in August of 2017, and notifications of admission decisions were mailed to all applicants during mid-August. All students who were offered a seat in the cohort accepted their offer and have been admitted to ECU. A waiting list was also established for this cohort, and students who were placed on the waiting list have been notified.

Interested students who are graduating from high school in 2018 are encouraged to pursue other options for the 2018-2019 school year and are welcome to consider applying for the 2019 cohort instead. Applications for the 2019 cohort will be posted on our website in early 2018, and the deadline for Fall 2019 admission to STEPP will be May 15, 2017. 

Mentor Applications for 2018-2019 Academic Year and Summer 2018

STEPP will begin accepting applications for our Mentor Graduate Assistantships for the 2018-2019 academic year during the spring 2018 semester. STEPP Mentors must be enrolled in an ECU graduate school program and be able to commit to working 20-25 hours per week in both the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters. 
We are also accepting applications for mentors to work during Summer I and Summer II 2018. To apply, please use the same application and indicate your interest in summer work using the checkboxes at the bottom of page 1.

The STEPP Program welcomed the 2017 Cohort and their parents to ECU the week of August 14th 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!
