If you would like to be considered for conditional admission and apply to ECU without TOEFL or IELTS scores you may do so under the following conditions.
Conditional admission without submission of TOEFL or IELTS scores requires successful completion of a language academy or program in the US prior to full admission at East Carolina University. Visit http://www.ecu.edu/ecula/ for more information on ECU’s Language Academy (ECULA). Agreement to these terms must be received prior to review of your application by the academic unit. ECU does not offer conditional admission without submission of GRE or GMAT scores.
You must submit your application, application fee, statement of purpose, reference letters, official GRE or GMAT scores, official transcripts (mark sheets), and diploma to ECU prior to the review of your application by the academic unit. An entrance exam, GRE or GMAT, is required for admission to ECU, this requirement is not waived.
Once all required documents have been received, your application will be forwarded to the academic program to be reviewed for an admission decision. You will be notified of the academic program’s admission decision. If conditionally admitted, your official admission will not be granted by the Graduate School until you have completed the language requirement by either successfully completing the language academy or program or submitting acceptable TOEFL or IELTS scores to ECU. Your admission letter and graduate program I-20 will be prepared when this requirement has been satisfied. A conditional admission letter can be provided by the Graduate School upon request if needed for scholarship or funding purposes. When you are admitted to a language academy, an I-20 is issued for the duration of that program. Upon completion a second I-20 will be provided by the Graduate School for your academic program.
If you wish to be considered for conditional admission under these terms, please see the Graduate Admissions page for International Students which includes information on how to apply to the university.
