Go Global: MPA/MPP Degrees Make a World of Difference
Out of State and International Students
ECU welcomes applications from outstanding out of state and international students.
The MPA Program does have access to several out of state remissions each year that it can award. These remissions reduce the tuition and fees due each term to the same rate as a North Carolina resident. A condition of these awards is also that the student also be granted a full-time graduate assistantship. The MPA Personal Datasheet is the form one uses to apply for these awards.
Out of State Residents:
The application process for residents of other states is the same as it is for North Carolina citizens.
The Graduate School governs the admission process and requirements for international students. The processes and procedures can be found at: http://www.ecu.edu/gradschool/international.cfm
