The Offices

Department of Enrollment Management and Retention

The admissions, financial aid, retention, and graduation functions are a central concern of the University community. Our efforts are holistic in nature and, equally important, are synced regularly, which results in activities being more efficiently coordinated. Using this approach, Elizabeth City State University addresses and manages enrollment concerns by coordinating the efforts of the following offices: Admissions and Recruitment, Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, Registrar, and Retention.

Admissions and Recruitment

The Admissions and Recruitment office works to admit students whose academic achievements are reflective of a rigorous and engaging curriculum. That means, we value intellectual ability, academic achievement, and personal abilities that contribute to the ECSU community.

Student Financial Aid and Scholarships

The Student Financial Aid and Scholarships office is committed to assisting students and families in planning for and meeting expenses associated with attendance at the university. We focus on establishing aid eligibility, awarding scholarships, grants, loans, and employment to eligible students, and providing financial aid counseling to students and families for the resolution of problems associated with financing an education.

University Registrar

The Office of the Registrar is the steward of student records from the point of matriculation to the conferral of the degree. We offer a wide range of services to faculty, students, and members of the administration in the areas of academic records, student status, transcript requests, course enrollment, and graduation.


The Retention office is dedicated to planning, coordinating, and administering retention efforts aimed at improving the academic and social experience of our students. We are vested in a systemic approach to student success, and our retention efforts are framed with this in mind. Whether academic, social, personal, or financial, we are dedicated to helping students overcome obstacles that impede student success.
