ECC and ECSU Sign Co-Admission Agreement
Edgecombe Community College and Elizabeth City State University have signed an agreement that guarantees admission to ECSU for qualified ECC students.
In addition, the two schools signed three degree program agreements that provide ECC students with a clear path to four-year degree completion at ECSU.
Held April 29 and attended by ECC and ECSU officials, the signing ceremony highlighted criminal justice, business administration, birth-to-kindergarten education, and a co-admission agreement that enables students to be admitted to ECC and ECSU simultaneously, then move to the university upon completion of their associate degree.
Both the criminal justice and business administration programs include an online degree completion component. The birth-to-kindergarten program, however, requires students pursuing their bachelor’s degree in early childhood education to attend classes on campus. The program involves hands-on coursework at ECSU’s early childhood laboratory.
In addition to Edgecombe Community College students who earn associate in arts and associate in science degrees – which are offered through ECC’s College Transfer program – students who complete associate of applied science degrees in criminal justice, business administration, accounting, and early childhood education will be able to transfer to ECSU under the new agreements.
Dr. Greg McLeod, president of Edgecombe Community College, and Dr. Karrie Dixon, chancellor of Elizabeth City State University, signed the agreements.
“At Edgecombe, we are dedicated to fulfilling the needs of our students,” noted ECC President Dr. Greg McLeod. “We are pleased with the opportunities this partnership provides, and we look forward to a strong, successful, and long-lasting relationship with ECSU.”
