Visiting Students FAQ

Q.   When do students need to pay for semester courses/credits? Where is the payment sent?
A.    Tuition payments must be made before the add/drop period ends for each semester, or the bursar will remove a student from classes for non-payment. If this happens, NCCU does have a reinstatement process which allows a student to pay his/her bill (including a late fee) after the add/drop deadline. However; additional approval is required and late registration is not guaranteed; therefore, we encourage students to pay for courses by the start of the session they plan to attend. Tuition payments should be made directly to the NCCU Student Accounting Office.
Q. Is there a limit on number of credit hours a student can take in the summer or in a particular summer session?
A. Students are limited to five credit hours per summer session for a total of ten credits for the entire summer.
Q. Does a visiting student need to apply to the School of Law?
A. Yes, students interested in visiting at NCCU Law must complete an application before they can be registered for classes.
Q. Do summer school courses usually fill up quickly? Is space in summer courses reserved for non-NCCU students and is it difficult for non-NCCU students to get in a summer course?
A. We cannot determine which classes will fill quickly and which will not. We do not reserve seats for non-NCCU students but we make every effort to assist visiting students with class registration.
Q. Can students at other law schools register for part-time enrollment at NCCU Law during the academic year (fall or spring)?
A. We allow non-NCCU Law students to enroll part-time in any semester. Part-time status for financial aid purposes is 4.5 credits. Per an inter-institutional agreement between UNC Law and NCCU Law, UNC students are allowed to take classes at NCCU during the fall and/or spring semesters. Under the inter-institutional agreement, students must be registered for at least six credit hours at their home institution. If students are registered as full-time students at their home institution, an inter-institutional registration at NCCU Law typically does not result in any additional charges for the semester unless there are special fees associated with a particular course (i.e., a technology fee for online courses). It is strongly advised that a student interested in visiting speak with the Student Accounting Office or Registrar’s office at their home institution. The inter-institutional agreement between UNC Law and NCCU Law does not cover summer school courses.
