Welcome to the Online Undergraduate Catalogs
There are two versions of the undergraduate online catalog for you to reference. The HTML version allows the user easy navigation and indicates up-to-date curricular revisions. The PDF version is an exact replica of the current printed ECU undergraduate catalog.
The online undergraduate catalog is for informational purposes only, and does not constitute a contractual agreement between a student and East Carolina University. The university reserves the right to make changes in curricula, degree requirements, course offerings, or academic regulations at any time when, in the judgment of the faculty, the Chancellor, or the Board of Trustees, such changes are in the best interest of the students and the university.
East Carolina University is committed to equality of educational opportunity and does not discriminate against applicants, students, or employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, creed, sexual orientation, or disability. East Carolina University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer that accommodates the needs of individuals with disabilities.
Which Catalog Version Should You Use?
The HTML version is an updated catalog that indicates curricular revisions soon after approval by the Faculty Senate and the Chancellor. It is a dynamic document that informs faculty, staff, and students of recent revisions to the catalog that go into effect the following semester. Revisions are indicated in green text.
The PDF version is an exact replica of the current printed Undergraduate Catalog.
Which Catalog Year Should You Use?
A degree-seeking student enters East Carolina University under the catalog in effect at the time of official enrollment. Students can choose to graduate under a catalog published after the student is originally enrolled. Undergraduates have a period of five years in which to graduate under a specific catalog year.
For all matters regarding an earlier academic year, refer to the appropriate archived catalog. By August 15 of each year, the undergraduate catalog for an academic year is “frozen” to establish the guidelines and regulations under which each incoming class will matriculate.
