HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS
Most North Carolina public high schools now have the capability to electronically send official high school transcripts to East Carolina University through CFNC.org. We encourage you to visit your school counselor to verify coursework and grades prior to requesting an electronic transcript.

o Make sure you have entered the following information in the This is Me section of Your Profile:

o NC Student Number (formerly NCWISE Student ID) - This can also be found on your report card.

If these conditions are met, you are ready to proceed to the Transcript Manager. A successfully requested transcript should be received by the college within 1-2 business days.
If these conditions were met when you submitted your CFNC.org online application, you will then be presented with the option to request your high school transcript be sent electronically to us.
If you submitted an online admission application through the ECU Admissions Portal, we encourage you to request your high school transcript be sent electronically to us from the CFNC Transcript Manager (located under the Apply tab → To College → Transcript Manager).
