International Students in Distance Learning Courses

Non-U.S. citizens are welcome to enroll in Distance Learning courses (Internet courses). Since a student taking Distance Learning courses will reside outside of the physical boundaries of the United States, he or she will be exempt from the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS) regulations and Visa requirements. A student follows the same admission procedure to Carteret Community College for Distance Learning courses as U.S. citizens. See the section in this catalog on General Admission requirements for more information. All Distance Learning international students will be charged out-of-state tuition rates established by the North Carolina General Assembly.
