Transfer Student Orientation

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.  We have prepared an orientation program to assist you with the transition to the ECU community.  You will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor, attend academic sessions, take placement tests, and register for your classes.  A walking tour will be offered during check-in only, so arrive early if you would like a tour.

We are excited that you are transferring to East Carolina University! We realize your experiences and needs are different from those of incoming freshmen so we have designed an orientation program that highlights information pertinent to you as a transfer student. Whether you are joining the ECU community from a local 2-year college or from out-of-state, or plan to transfer from another 4-year institution, orientation provides an opportunity for you to discover aspects of ECU that differ from your previous institution.

For students admitted as transfer students, orientation sessions are held in January, May, June, and August. Transfer students also have the option of completing an online orientation.

January Orientation - Date will be announced soon
May Orientation - May 20-21, 2015
June Orientation - June 8-9, 2015
