Courses and Instructors

Our online courses are designed and taught with the same care that our in-person courses are designed and taught. In many cases, the same instructor teaches the same course in both formats. All of our courses convey college-level credit documented by an official transcript from NC State University, a fully accredited institution. All of our courses are open to both on-campus, degree-seeking NC State students and non-degree students (NDS). And all of our instructors are faculty at NC State with advanced degrees in their fields and extensive teaching experience.

While we can list courses that are often available online, the most reliable source of information is to look at what courses are scheduled in a given fall, spring or summer session. For the dates of upcoming academic sessions, refer to the Academic Calendar. To determine when you can enroll for a given academic session based on your student classification, refer to the Enrollment Calendar. You can also visit the courses pages of our Undergrad Microbiology Certificate or our Grad Certificate in Biology for Educators to see course lists and descriptions.
