Working adults and others who are not able to travel to campus may find many advantages by enrolling in an online degree or certificate program. Advantages include reduction in travel expense, a study schedule based on an individual's work and family life, and reduced tuition rates that do not include on-campus health and recreation center fees. Although online programs may provide opportunities for distant learners and working adults, rigor and quality of courses are comparable to those offered through campus classes. Many students prefer learning online and report a more productive and enjoyable learning experience compared to traditional classroom courses. Prospective students may assess their own learning preferences through the self-evaluation resources provided below.

Faculty advisors can help students make a program area decisions. After students have decided on the program that best meets their career goals, they will submit the online application through Graduate Admissions. The Graduate School at East Carolina University requires a fee with the completed application form. All academic transcripts must be sent to the Graduate Admissions office. Students may also be required to submit letters of recommendation and a statement of purpose. Many programs also require a qualifying entrance exam such as the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or the Miller Analogy Test (MAT). Students can take both the GRE and the MAT at the ECU Testing Center.
