Now that you have been admitted, there are several important steps for enrollment that must be completed in the checklist below:

First Things First.

❏  Set up your PirateID and email – Please log into the Admissions Portal account you created when you submitted your application.  There you will find your PirateID, ECU ID, and email address. Then, click here to activate your PirateID and create your secure passphrase. Need help? This helpful tutorial video will walk you through the process.

Important Note: All official correspondence will take place via your ECU email address. This includes tuition and fee bills, financial aid information, and any messages from your academic advisor, academic department, and faculty. Please check it frequently.

❏  Verify your residency (NC residents only) – If you wish to claim in-state residency for tuition purposes, please make sure to complete the Residency Determination Service (RDS) process at www.NCresidency.org, if you have not already done so. You will need to provide us with your Residency Certification Number (RCN) via the Admissions Portal.

❏  Registration – Please contact our Registrar directly to make arrangements for course registration. Registrar: 252-328-6524 or regis@ecu.edu.

Before You Arrive.

❏  Complete your medical report – If you will be taking more than 4 credit hours, visiting students are required to submit the student Report of Medical History form with their immunization records to Student Health Services. You must be cleared as “health compliant” prior to actual attendance.

Visit the Student Health Services webpage for more information.

Important Reminders

Course Availability – We do not guarantee all courses will have seats open as we operate on a space-available basis. Please contact the Registrar as soon as possible to register for your course(s).

Limit of Credit Hours – Enrollment as a visiting student is limited to no more than 28 semester hours earned at East Carolina University. Credit earned as a visiting student cannot be used to establish eligibility for admission into the university, but up to 28 semester hours earned may be applied after the student has been admitted.
