NC A&T - ECU Early Assurance Scholars Program (EASP)
The North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) and East Carolina University - Brody School of Medicine (BSOM) Early Assurance Scholar's Program (EASP) was developed to provide a unique opportunity for select students at N.C. A&T pursuing a career in medicine. Outstanding students entering N.C. A&T as freshmen may apply for the EASP. Up to eight scholars will be selected to participate in the program each year. Up to two top EASP student scholars may be selected for guaranteed seats in the BSOM entering class, four years in advance. Provided that the program requirements are maintained, and the SAT math and verbal combined scores are greater than or equal to 1200 (old SAT) or 1270 (new SAT) or an ACT composite score of 27 or greater, the top two students will not be required to take the MCAT. All participants will be required to complete a 'common curriculum track' in order to complete all medical school requirements and be prepared to take the MCAT (if required) by the end of the junior year. The EASP is NOT discipline specific; therefore, students interested in all majors at N.C. A&T may apply.
In line with the university mission, the N.C. A&T-ECU Early Assurance Scholars Program was developed through an agreement between N.C. A&Tand ECU Brody School of Medicine. This unique program was implemented to increase the number of students at N.C. A&T prepared to enter medical school upon graduation and to increase diversity among North Carolina's health care professionals.
