2014 Cohort Has Been Selected
Final admission decisions were made for the 2014 cohort of Project STEPP in August 2013. At this time, we have selected a cohort and established a waiting list. Interested students may still submit an application packet; however, new applicants will only be reviewed if vacancies arise in the 2014 cohort between now and May 1, 2014. Please contact Emily Johnson if you have any questions.
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.

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.
