The goal of the Transfer Advising office is to insure transfer students are supported through transitional services such as of academic advising, seminars, information exchange, and academic engagement opportunities.
Upon entering the University, you will be advised by a department advisor. Before being contacted by an advisor, the student will be contacted by the Transfer Advising Office to discuss degree plans and go over their General Education requirements. You may also contact the chair of your department for advising questions/concerns; however, by the fourth week of classes, you will be able to see who your advisor is in Banner.

Before any course substitutions take place, course descriptions are reviewed from the previous institution and compared to ECSU’s offering. After which, a decision will be made by the Department Chairperson of the course in which is being reviewedand/or Academic Affairs.
How many credits do I need to graduate?
All majors require 120 defined credits to graduate from ECSU. A plan of study will be completed with your advisor to determine the remaining credits needed to graduate and when you can graduate, provided that the courses are offered during the semester anticipated.
Can I take all my courses online?
If your program of study is an online program then, yes. If the major is not then most of your courses will be face-to-face.
I work, do you have evening courses?
Some programs offer evening courses. You will need to speak to an advisor regarding this.

Will courses taken 10 years ago be accepted?

Do I have to submit all previous transcripts even if the courses are irrelevant to the degree I am seeking?
All transcripts are required to be submitted to the Admissions Office before acceptance.
How many courses can be accepted from my previous school(s)?
Students can transfer up to 65 credits from a two-year institution and up to 90 credits from a four-year institution. A minimum of 30 upper-level semester hours in your major must be earned through regular enrollment at ECSU
I have an associate degree can I immediately take courses in my major?
Your transfer credits will be evaluated by your major department and the department will make a decision as to what pre-requisite courses may be needed before enrolling in major courses.

ECSU has 3 schools, 9 departments and 27 undergraduate programs to choose from.
ECSU offers two online degree completion programs in Business Administration and Criminal Justice. To pursue enrollment in one of these programs, you must meet their initial enrollment requirements. A department advisor will discuss these requirements.
ECSU offers two online degree programs in Homeland Security and Interdisciplinary Studies. Although these two social science programs are offered online, students still receive the same rigor and quality as all other programs here at ECSU.
If students attended a North Carolina Community College, courses are articulated using the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement course listing. ECSU will transfer a maximum of 65 credits from any 2-year institution.
If students attended a four-year institution or an out-state community college, the course description of the course are reviewed by the Admissions Office or the department for their equivalency. ECSU will transfer in up to 90 credits from a 4-year institution.
Elizabeth City State University requires that all students complete 35 credits in general education requirements. North Carolina Community College transfer students who have earned an AA or AS degree meeting the requirements of the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) will be waived from UNIV 110 Freshman Seminar I and UNIV 120 Freshman Seminar II; however, all students must have 120 credit hours to graduate. Therefore the two credits must be earned through free electives. All other General Education requirements will be determined as met provided that the transfer student has completed the AS or AA that aligns with Elizabeth City State University North Carolina Community College Degree Plans.
Students holding an AS and/or AA degree may be held to other General Education requirements. All other transfer students will be held to the General Education requirements in its entirety, with the exception of Freshman Seminar provided they completed at least 12 transferable credits.
Some general education requirements consist of courses that have been prescribed by the major department. A waiver will not be given for those courses not met in the specified area. Those general education courses that have been mandated by the department and therefore must be taken in order to meet the graduation requirements related to the major.
