Admissions Update: Coronavirus

In response to ongoing concerns surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), the following changes have been made regarding Admissions events:

  • Both Pirates Aboard! Admitted Student Days (March 21 and March 28) have been postponed. We are planning to reschedule to a single date later this spring. In the meantime, we are preparing an online resource to provide students and families with much of the information covered during Pirates Aboard to help students in their journey toward becoming a Pirate.
  • Campus tours from March 16 through March 27 have been cancelled. This includes the College of Engineering and Technology Admitted Student Academic Day on March 25. A decision about April tour dates will be made at a later date and registered attendees will be notified in the event of any changes.

Please stay tuned to our website and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for further updates. Updates will also be sent out via email and/or text message to registered attendees or other affected groups.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions remains open and continues to accept applications, process applications, and answer any questions you may have via email ( or phone (252-328-6640). You may also contact your admissions counselor directly through our Find Your Counselor tool.
