Congratulations on your acceptance to ECU! You will find that ECU is a warm and friendly campus with faculty and staff who are anxious to assist you in achieving your academic goals. The New Student Orientation program is designed to assist students with the transition to East Carolina University.

At New Student Orientation, you will take placement tests (if necessary), meet with an advisor, register for classes, discover resources available to you on campus, learn about student organizations, get your 1 Card (student ID), meet new friends, and HAVE FUN! You will also meet ECU staff, faculty, and an Orientation Assistant—an upper class student who can answer all your questions about life at ECU.

The New Student Orientation Program is designed to:

  • Academically prepare you for your first semester through placement testing, meeting with an advisor, and registering for classes.
  • Make you aware of important academic rules and regulations.
  • Introduce student life and involvement.
  • Provide a taste of what college life at ECU is like.
  • Help you to learn your way around campus.
  • Let you meet your fellow Pirates!
