There are general admission requirements in order to enter the university, as well as program-specific requirements that accompany the different degree programs or student types.
The East Carolina University website has an application portal with applications for those going into undergraduate or graduate programs, as well as applications for international students and members of the military. Through the portal, applicants can apply for admission, track their admission status and sign up for campus tours and open houses. Applicants need to create an account on the website to apply.
