The application deadline for students wishing to study Elementary Education full time is Jan. 15, 2014. This is for the cohort that begins in the second summer term of 2014. Details and the application are available at www.coe3.ecu.edu/pe/Full/.

The deadline to apply for the part-time program for Elementary, Special Education or Middle Grades is Feb. 15, 2014. The program begins in the fall of 2014. Go to www.coe3.ecu.edu/pe/Part/ for more information and to apply.
