FINISH & Partway Home
The FINISH Initiative works with any student wanting to return to ECU, providing a place to connect with ECU staff and faculty. FINISH staff assist students in connecting with admissions, academic advising, financial aid, registrar, or any other needed offices at ECU.
Partway Home, a UNC System initiative and division of the FINISH Initiative, provides specific benefits for students who have been away from ECU for two or more consecutive terms and have 90 or more semester hours completed.
Students who qualify for Partway Home status are able to receive a waiver of the $35 readmission application fee by noting on their re-admission application their Partway Home status. They may also qualify for a $200 completion grant and priority registration.
For more information, fill out the provided form, or email email@example.com.
Please note: the form provided on the FINISH/Partway Home website is not the re-admission application. Please view re-admission application details here.
