We’re glad you’re here! Whether you’re visiting from another college or university, here for a summer class, or just want to take a course for personal enrichment we couldn’t be happier you chose Carteret CC. Students who wish to take a class without declaring a major or who don’t plan on completing a degree, diploma, or certificate from Carteret CC can be admitted as Special Credit/Visiting (non-degree seeking) students.
If you answered yes to any of the above, then follow the steps below to apply as a Special Credit/Visiting student at Carteret Community College. Please be aware that Special Credit/Visiting students do not qualify for financial aid or veterans benefits. Students wishing to change their status from Special Credit/Visiting student to a degree-, diploma-, or certificate-seeking student must complete the full admissions process.
STEP 1 | COMPLETE YOUR RESIDENCY DETERMINATION
First, complete your North Carolina Residency Determination. This is required before submitting an application for admissions to Carteret CC and establishes whether you’ll pay in-state or out-of-state tuition. Once completed, you will be assigned a Residency Certification Number (RCN). Save this number! You’ll need it for the Carteret CC admission application.
Please note, there are some exceptions for in-state tuition such as military officers and dependents stationed in NC. Carteret CC requires documentation for these exceptions to be made. Requests for exceptions can be made by submitting a Waiver for In-State Tuition form.
STEP 2 | COMPLETE YOUR ADMISSIONS APPLICATION
Now you’re ready to complete the official admission application!
Things to keep in mind:
STEP 3 | SUBMIT TRANSCRIPTS (HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE)
Special Credit/Visiting students only need to provide a transcript if they are taking a course that has a pre-requisite course (a course that must be taken prior to take another course). If this applies to you, please send your transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Voilà! Now you’re ready to register for class.
