Online Learning 101
An introduction to learning online to help you understand what it means to be an online student and to be successful in the online environment. Online Learning 101 is divided into two sections: Prospective Students and Enrolled Students. The Prospective Students modules are geared towards students who are exploring online courses, but are not currently enrolled and need to know a little more before making a commitment. The Enrolled Students section is designed for anyone enrolled who has not already taken an online course and is interested in learning more about what taking an online course entails.
Whether you want to reserve materials, access our virtual computer lab, or get research assistance, you can do it all online via the James E. Shepard Memorial Library.

NC Residency Determination Service
The state of North Carolina partially subsidizes the cost of North Carolina public college and university tuition for all students whose domicile, or permanent legal residence, is in North Carolina. Residency determination establishes if students should have in-state or out-of-state tuition. Because North Carolina residency status is governed solely by North Carolina statute, lack of eligibility for in-state status in another state does not guarantee in-state status in North Carolina. The residency statute mandates only those who can demonstrate a minimum of twelve months of uninterrupted domicile (legal residence) in North Carolina are eligible for in-state tuition. The statute also places the burden of proof on the student to establish, by a preponderance of evidence, that they are a bona fide domiciliary rather than mere residents of North Carolina.
