Elizabeth City State University is a proud NC Promise campus committed to providing an affordable, high-quality education.   Our personalized environment provides learning experiences that help you achieve your personal and professional goals. 

At ECSU, we want students to focus more on their education and less on paying for college! Beginning the Fall of 2018, all undergraduate students attending ECSU will receive reduced student tuition. This includes full and part-time new freshmen, returning students, transfer students, international students and students in online programs. 

The NC Promise Tuition Plan means you pay $500 per semester for North Carolina residents and $2500 per semester for out-of-state students. NC Promise does not affect required fees and other costs of attendance. Please review related cost and fees.

NC Promise dramatically reduces the expense of your college education, saving students at least $7,400 in-state and $44,000 out-of-state over their 4 years at ECSU.  By lowering the overall cost of college, the NC Promise Tuition Plan will reduce the amount students need to borrow, resulting in less debt after graduation.
