Detailed information on financial aid can be obtained from the office of Student Financial Aid. You may want to research possible grants and scholarships from outside sources. You can reach the Financial Aid Office at 252-328-6610 or by visiting their website at www.ecu.edu/financial.
Student refunds are handled electronically via TouchNet. Students currently access TouchNet through ECU Pirate Port (http://pirateport.ecu.edu) web portal to view bills, make payments, view, download, and print 1098-T tax statements, and set up tuition payment plans.
With the eRefunds processed through TouchNet, students have the option for refunds to be deposited directly into a designated bank account of their choice. If direct deposit information is not provided to the University, refund checks will be mailed to the student. Please make sure your mailing address is up to date. Full details and instructions can be found here: www.ecu.edu/cs-admin/financial_serv/customcf/TouchNet_eRefunds.pdf.
In order for a student to pay for textbooks with financial aid or any type of scholarship, money must be deferred to a bookstore account. For more information, select the "Bookstore" tab under the Spending Accounts section on the following webpage, http://www.ecu.edu/1card/Current-Uses.cfm.
