International Student Services

Our office provides an orientation program to welcome and connect all new international students with the ECU family.

The orientation program offers specific sessions that include understanding the United States system of higher education, campus services and up-to-date immigration information. There are also shopping trips and special social events scheduled. We also coordinate a number of campus and community based cross-cultural programs to benefit the ECU international and domestic population. Programming includes welcome activities for new international students, holiday parties, International Student Association events and regular trips across the state of North Carolina.  Finally, our office administers immigration-related services for the University. Experienced advisors are available to assist international students with issues such as entry to the United States, authorization of employment and the general maintenance of legal status.
