What is the difference between my ECU ID and Pirate ID? How are they used?
The Pirate ID is also referred to as your username/userid. This is how you are identified for logging into most computing resources at ECU. It is made up of your initials and birthdate (MMDD). Your Pirate ID can be found in your Admissions letter. You can also find your Pirate ID by going to www.ecu.edu and selecting the icon. Type your last name and first name and click Search. Your email address will be displayed. Your Pirate ID is the first part of your email address ("PirateID"@ecu.edu).
You have also been assigned a unique "ECU ID" that identifies you as a student at East Carolina University. Your ECU ID - also known as your Banner ID, but different that your Pirate ID - will be required for very important functions such as dropping courses.
Helpful Hint: If you forget your ECU ID or passphrase go to www.ecu.edu, select the icon, answer your security questions to gain access to your ECU ID, change your passphrase, and/or unlock your account!
You can also find your ECU ID in OneStop.
Go to www.ecu.edu and select the icon.
