Welcome Veterans, Service Members & Family Members

Are you a current or former member of the U.S. Armed Services or perhaps a spouse or dependent of one?  If so, East Carolina University may be the perfect place for you to consider attending graduate school!

ECU is proud to be consistently recognized as a “military friendly” institution both nationally and regionally by a variety of sources and organizations.  Most recently, College Factual ranked ECU and the City of Greenville in the top 15 percent of schools in the country for college-bound veterans.

Specifically, ECU ranked 55 in the country and third in the state of North Carolina for veteran-students, using metrics like affordability and overall college quality.

Our campus is in close proximity to Camp LeJeune, Cherry Point and the Seymour Johnson military base, all of whom contribute to our student-veteran community.  The Graduate School receives approximately 600 applications from armed services personnel and their family members from all across the world each year

Through the collaborative efforts of a variety of offices, ECU offers a robust support and student engagement experience for our armed services students and their families, both in-person and online.  We invite you to learn more about how ECU supports and engages our veteran-student population by exploring the Student Military Services website.
