Program Overview

East Carolina University, the third largest of the 16 universities that make up the UNC system, ECU has been a leader in distance education in North Carolina for over 60 years. ECU recognized the potential of online learning early and was among the first schools in the nation to develop and offer a degree completely over the Internet. Since then, the university has developed close to 70 online degrees and certificate programs in business, education, health care, technology and other areas.

East Carolina University offers online distance education degree programs that allow students to access their coursework 24 hours a day, seven days a week via the internet. At ECU, online courses are taught by the same faculty as our campus classes and the readings, assignments and exams mirror the on- campus section. These programs include structured, well-designed courses and special instructional techniques to help you succeed as an online student.

From admission to graduation, a system of student support services is available to offer assistance, answer questions, and provide direction. You can contact the student services staff of the Division of Continuing Studies by emailing http://www.options@ecu.edu.
