Submitting your Enrollment Deposit

We’re thrilled you’ve decided to make East Carolina University your home! In order to join the ranks of Pirate Nation and secure your spot in our upcoming class, your first step is to submit your non-refundable $100 enrollment deposit.

The priority enrollment deposit deadline for freshmen is May 15th. Due to the nationwide FAFSA delay, deposits will continue to be welcomed after May 15th. Learn more about Financial Aid.

If you haven’t already set up your PirateID and secure passphrase, you’ll need to complete that step first. Learn more on the Admitted Student Checklist page. After your PirateID is activated, follow these instructions to pay your enrollment deposit:

  • Use the PirateID you created earlier to log into PiratePort.
  • In the search bar at the top of PiratePort, type in “tuition” and select “Tuition Statements, 1098-T Statements and Payments.”
  • In the new window, select the “Deposits” tab, choose the deposit term (i.e. Fall 2024), and click “Select.”
  • Choose “Enrollment Deposit – Main Campus,” click “Select,” and then “Continue.”
  • Choose your desired payment method, and click “Select.”
  • Follow the steps on the screen to enter and submit your payment information.

Note: You will receive a payment confirmation by email.
