Professional Licensure Disclosure Statement:

Eligibility for licensure and/or certification may involve more than successful degree completion.  ECU cannot confirm that its courses or degree programs meet the requirements for professional licensure outside of the State of North Carolina.  ECU strongly encourages prospective and current students to contact the appropriate or applicable licensing board(s) in states they may wish to pursue licensure prior to beginning study in an ECU academic program. 

Important Note to Residents Outside North Carolina:

Admission of applicants outside the State of North Carolina to an online degree, certificate or individual online course offered by East Carolina University, is dependent on ECU’s ability to secure authorization from the applicant’s state of residence, if such authorization is required.

Due to evolving changes in higher education regulations, ECU will no longer be able to offer distance education online programs or courses for students residing in District of Columbia (DC), Kentucky, Minnesota, Oregon, or Utah. We are also unable to offer distance education online programs or courses to students residing in Ohio, except for those taking courses to pursue ECU’s Nursing – MSN – Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program and Nursing – CNS – Clinical Nurse Specialist. ECU continues to work with state authorities to allow students in these states who are currently enrolled in an ECU online or certificate program to complete their degree.

Additionally, students enrolled in programs or courses that require internships or supervised clinical placements will be unable to complete these activities in the state listed.

Because authorization is an evolving area, please check this site again for the latest statement from ECU.

For questions or concerns specific to the state authorization process, contact us at
