Welcome ECSU Students!
Welcome to Elizabeth City State University! We strive to be a student-focused institution, and we are proud of you, our students. Your academic achievement and your success in activities outside the classroom contribute greatly to the success of ECSU.
Even though ECSU is committed to offering academically rigorous and innovative programs, I know that learning occurs beyond the classroom walls. Therefore, the university is equally committed to providing a holistic college experience that offers opportunities for growth and success in leadership, cultural, and social endeavors. Likewise, we strive to ensure that support programs are in place to assist you in all aspects of college life.
The Division of Student Affairs continues to work tirelessly to provide a campus atmosphere that promotes and enhances both academic and social growth. The professional staff is equipped to assist you with building leadership skills, and the division offers numerous activities and programs that will help you become an effective and outstanding leader. You may also take advantage of services designed to support your academic success.
Several units are under the umbrella of Student Affairs, including admissions, financial aid, counseling and testing, and campus police. Collaboration among these units provides a strong framework to help ensure the growth and development of each student, which is our number one goal.
Thank you for choosing ECSU where you will elevate higher and emerge stronger. We are happy to have you as a member of the Viking Family. You have embarked upon one of the most rewarding college experiences in the nation. As an alumnus, I can assure you that your time here will have a lifelong positive impact.
Viking Pride! Viking Pride! Viking Pride!
