Message from the Chancellor

Welcome to Elizabeth City State University (ECSU)!


Since 1891, students have been the heartbeat of ECSU. We are intentional in providing student-centered services to create an environment where students love where they live and learn; and, employees love where they work! This is the place where we welcome diversity of individuals and ideas.

We offer a broad range of undergraduate degree programs and four master’s degree programs that will prepare students to be competitive in a global market place. Our signature aviation program is the only four-year aviation program offered in the State of North Carolina. This program will be a significant provider of aviation and aerospace employees for the region, state, and nation.

In addition to a stimulating teaching and learning environment, ECSU offers many opportunities for student engagement. Our safe and nurturing campus is the ideal place for student involvement outside of the classroom. Students receive a well-rounded college experience that prepares them to be leaders and contributing members of society.

Use this catalog to chart your course to student success. Refer to it often. Contact your academic advisor should you need assistance.

We look forward to assisting you on your journey to success.

Viking Pride!

Karrie G. Dixon, Ed.D.
Interim Chancellor
