Visiting Students FAQ

 

Q.  Would a student need to register by May 21, 2019, for both sessions?
A. No.  After Summer I ends, registration reopens again briefly for registration updates/changes for Summer II.  Typically, the last day to register for each session is on the first or second day of class for that session.
Q. When would students need to pay for credits and would they pay NCCU directly?
A.    Payment must be made before the add/drop period ends for each semester, or students will be dropped for non-payment.  If this happens, we do have a reinstatement process which allows students to pay charges (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.  Payment should be made directly to NCCU.
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. Would the student need to apply to the university?
A. Yes, there is a visiting student application that students must complete before they can be registered for the class.
Q. Do summer seats usually fill up quickly? Are there seats reserved for non-NCCU students and is it usually difficult for non-NCCU students to get seats in the summer?
A. Usually we cannot determine what courses may fill up very quickly and which may not.We do not reserve seats for non-NCCU students but we make every effort we can to help students register for the class.
Q. Can students at other local law schools register part-time at NCCU during the academic year (fall or spring)?
A. Part-time status for financial aid purposes is 4.5 credits.  We allow non-NCCU students to attend NCCU Law part-time in any semester.  For fall and spring registration, UNC students are allowed to take classes at NCCU per the inter-institutional agreement between UNC Law and NCCU Law.  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, inter-institutional registration at NCCU 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 students speak with the Student Accounting department or Registrar’s office at their home institution.  Please note that the inter-institutional agreement between UNC Law and NCCU Law does not cover summer courses.
