Applying for 2014? It's time to start thinking about the SAT/ACT
If you are planning to apply for the 2014 cohort of Project STEPP, you will need to have SAT or ACT scores available by the May 15th Project STEPP application deadline. ACT scores must include the "optional" writing section.
Note: If you plan to take the SAT or ACT with accommodations, we strongly recommend beginning the accommodations request process at least two months before your planned test date (based on the past experiences of students who have applied to the program).

Fall Open House - November 2, 2013
If you missed ECU's Spring Open House in April, mark your calendar for the upcoming Fall event! The next ECU Open House will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013. In conjunction with this event, Project STEPP is inviting students, parents, and educators to join us to learn more about our program.
The schedule will be as follows:
- From 9:30 am until 12:30 pm, you can visit the Project STEPP booth at the Student Affairs Fair to pick up informational flyers and chat briefly with a program representative.
- Between 1:00 and 3:00 pm, the Project STEPP office will be open. An in-depth information session and question-and-answer period will be held from 1:30-2:30. Before and after this session, you can tour the Project STEPP office and speak with program staff individually.
Click here to download an informational flyer about our Open House events. If you have questions about our Open House, please contact Emily Johnson.
Registration is not required for the Project STEPP events; however, we strongly recommend signing up to attend ECU's campus-wide Open House events on the ECU Admissions Office's Upcoming Events website.
In July of 2011, The Project STEPP offices relocated from the Rivers Building to the second floor of Joyner Library. If you haven't visited us since then, feel free to drop by and check out the "Project STEPP Learning Cove" in the heart of main campus!
