Students admitted into a graduate program may be awarded financial support in the form of an assistantship. These programs provide financial support to enable students to focus their research and academic endeavors. Students must apply for an assistantship and will be selected based on an evaluation of academic records, recommendations, experience, and other relevant criteria. To qualify for a graduate assistantship, students must be enrolled as a full-time student and in good academic standing. Graduate Assistantships are contingent upon institutional funding.

Combined with the fully online nature of our graduate program, where all courses are taught by a diverse faculty with doctoral degrees, we believe that this makes ECU an excellent choice for you.
