Readmission in Good Standing

Students who break enrollment (for a full semester or longer) at East Carolina University while in Good Standing are eligible to apply for readmission at any time. If a student has taken courses at another regionally accredited institution while away from the university, a gpa of a 2.5 or higher must be earned in order to be eligible for readmission. Only those courses with a grade of C (2.0) or better will be transferable to ECU.

Readmission Following Suspension

Students must apply for readmission to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Eligibility to apply for readmission after suspension does not guarantee acceptance as the university must adhere to enrollment restrictions. 

Students readmitted to East Carolina University after suspension are placed on “probation after suspension” and expected to achieve a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. A student on probation after suspension who does not achieve a cumulative 2.0 GPA will be suspended unless he/she earns at least a 2.5 GPA in that semester, in which case he/she remains on probation.

Readmission Under the Forgiveness Policy

Former East Carolina University students who have not been enrolled at ECU for a minimum of four consecutive semesters (excluding summer sessions) may request readmission under the Forgiveness Policy. Such requests must be submitted on the application for readmission according to application deadlines.
