Distance Education

Like you, not all ECU students attend classes on campus.  The Pirate Academic Success Center (PASC) has designed services with you in mind, providing you online options for tutoring and academic success coaching (study skills). All our tutoring appointments and study skills support can be done using WebEx, a video conferencing application used in classes at ECU.

As an ECU distance education student, you may be trying to balance school, work and family responsibilities. Every new semester brings a new challenge to meet the academic demands of classes with your limited schedule. If this describes you, PASC success coaching appointments will help. Our academic success coaches can work with you to develop study skills and a personal academic and life-balance plan that works for you and help keeps you organized and accountable.

To schedule an appointment with an academic success coach complete this short form.

To request tutoring complete this form.

You can also book a study skills or tutoring appointment online: ecu.accudemia.net or by calling us at 252-737-3009.

Remember, all PASC services are free to ECU enrolled students!

Academic Success Coaching

The Academic Success Coaching program provides academic support to all ECU students – free of charge! In a one-on-one academic coaching session, you can develop an individualized plan for implementing practical, proven strategies resulting in better grades.  Coaching assistance focuses on the following topics:  obtaining college success, enhancing test taking skills, improving study habits, learning textbook reading tips, effective note taking in lectures, improving academic time management and motivation, developing course success strategies and referrals to other campus resources if needed.

Academic coaching sessions meet on the Microsoft TEAMS platform or even by phone.  Sessions are typically 45 minutes to 1 hour in length and are designed specifically around your needs. If this is something you are interested in, you can book online at ecu.accudemia.net.
