Special Student Categories

Provisional Students

If you apply too late to satisfy all the admissions requirements before the registration period is over, you may be allowed to enter the College as a provisional student. The Student Services staff will make this final decision. Once you have fulfilled all admissions requirements, you may be admitted in good standing. You will have until the end of your first semester to fulfill the requirements.

Senior Citizens

Effective Fall 2013, the senior citizen waiver for students over 65 years old has been eliminated. All senior citizens will be required to pay for tuition and fees for classes beginning on, or after, August 15, 2013. Please note that tuition and registration fees are established by the North Carolina State Legislature and are subject to change without notice.

Audit/Non-Degree Students

If you wish to audit courses, you must register and receive the approval of the instructor for the particular course(s). Audit students do not receive credit but must adhere to attendance, pre-requisite and co-requisite regulations. An audit course cannot be changed to credit course nor can a course taken for credit be changed to audit after the drop/add period. Audit work cannot be used toward certificate, diploma, or degree requirements. Curriculum students will have priority over audit students for registration. Students who register for a course as audit work but then withdraw should be assigned a grade of W for the course. The fees for audit courses are the same as those taken for credit.
