East Carolina University no longer publishes printed catalogs. Instead, both undergraduate and graduate catalogs are offered online at http://www.ecu.edu/registrar/catalog.cfm.
Degree-seeking students enter East Carolina University under the catalog in effect at the time of official enrollment. Students can choose to graduate under a catalog published after the date of official enrollment. Undergraduates have a period of five years in which to graduate under a specific catalog year. Graduate students have a period of six years in which to graduate under a specific catalog year. For all matters regarding an earlier academic year, refer to the appropriate archived catalog. Archived catalogs are located at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/registrar/catalogarchive.cfm.
The university's catalogs are for informational purposes only, and do not constitute a contractual agreement between a student and East Carolina University. The university reserves the right to make changes in curricula, degree requirements, course offerings, or academic regulations at any time when, in the judgment of the faculty, the chancellor, or the Board of Trustees, such changes are in the best interest of the students and the university.
