New & Transfer Student Orientation
Congratulations on your admission to Elizabeth City State University (ECSU); we hope that you are excited to begin your academic career as a Viking! Your first act as a Viking is to attend the New & Transfer Student Orientation program (NTSO) and New Viking Days for new freshman and transfer students.
NTSO assists you with your transition to ECSU by introducing you to the university, its
services and offices, and it provides an opportunity for new students to interact
with staff, faculty, and administrators. During NTSO you will meet with an academic
adviser and register for classes. All new students are required to attend an orientation program prior to enrolling
in the Fall or Spring semester.
