Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

East Carolina offers a comprehensive on-line program for non-traditional students seeking to further their education and achieve career goals. I was able to attend on-line classes, gain knowledge and insight on my aspirations to be a school librarian, and still keep my teaching job! It was very important to me to further my education without jeopardizing my career responsibilities or personal obligations. I was able to take two classes during the summer sessions, to help quicken the process of obtaining my master's degree, and never had an issue with course availability. The professors I encountered while obtaining my MLS were always very helpful and knowledgeable within their field. I have heard East Carolina University has a beautiful campus, and I regret not being able to see it prior to graduation. Had I had known the transition back to college would have gone so smoothly, I would have started this journey sooner!

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

I think the education that I am receiving is really helping to improve my skills and the faculty members are great when it comes to teaching and supporting their students. As a grad student pursuing music, I was able to get an out of state tuition remission as well as a grad assistantship which was extremely helpful financially considering I am an independent. One downfall would be the surrounding area. Greenville is not the safest place. Also, trying to find private students to teach cello to is very difficult.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is competitive and offers great courses and faculty, however financial aid awards are subjective and ambiguous. The location pulls you away from areas that promise great internship and job opportunities. I have been impressed with the program, but sometimes question if I am gaining the right experiences that will make me competitive in the job market.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Online programs cost more than I expected and my employer's tuition assistance program will not cover all of my courses.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The Pros of this program is the small class size and the willingness of the professors to go above and beyond to help their students. The atmosphere is also not as competitive as other schools. The location of Brody and the building itself is a con.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: I can go back to school and still be a family woman at home and in my local community. Cons: I sometimes miss the face-face interaction of my course mates. However, the Health Education and Promotion professors are so helpful such that their ways of teaching is outstanding and very interactive. To bridge the gap between my online school work and on-campus life, I seize the opportunities to attend health-related seminars and go to Greenville for work-related trainings. In that way, I don't feel lonely as a graduate distance education student. The pros definitely outweigh the cons.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros - Being a completely online program means that the work load is a lot BUT I love it so much because I am learning at every moment and using what I have learned directly at work. That alone, makes me appreciate what I am doing as a graduate student, and makes me appreciate ECU for making it affordable. Cons - Being a mother of young children ranging from ages 10 to 4 and working part-time, homeschooling, writing on the side and getting published, and being actively involved in my local community, makes my graduate program overwhelming.

Offers great flexibility for working professional. Distance education is virtually campus education.
