Eligibility and Costs for Individual Youth, Family, and Community Sciences Online Graduate Courses

Costs

Visit NC State’s Graduate Distance Education Tuition Rates page for detailed information about graduate-level tuition and fees. The current estimated cost per credit hour (North Carolina residents) for 2017-2018 is $431.88.

Eligibility

Only students admitted to NC State can take classes at the University. Anyone interested in taking courses without enrolling in a degree program at NC State must first apply as a Non-Degree Studies (NDS) student. Admission to NDS does not imply admission to an NC State degree program. NDS students are classified as non-degree-seeking. Grades earned as an NDS student will go toward the student’s NC State University grade point average or may be transferred to another institution based on that institution’s transfer policy.

The Post-Baccalaureate Studies (PBS) classification is assigned to those NDS students who have earned a bachelor’s degree. Enrolling as a PBS student is an excellent way to explore different fields of study to fulfill your personal and career goals.

As an NDS student, you may register for a maximum course load of eight (8) hours per semester on a space-available basis. Some courses carry prerequisites or are limited to degree-seeking students, so review the course schedule to determine your eligibility. NDS students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at all times.

To be eligible to apply for NDS, prospective students must:

  • … be eligible to return to any previous institution(s) attended.
  • … have accumulated less than thirty (30) hours of total credit as an NDS student at NC State. NDS students are limited to a total of 30 hours of credit in NDS status. Students with 29 hours attempted will be allowed to register for the next term even if their enrollment in that future term will exceed the 30-hour limit, but they will not be activated for any subsequent terms once they have accumulated or exceeded 30 hours of credit.

For more details on NDS enrollment eligibility, please see the NDS Enrollment Rule.
