State Authorization Information for Distance Ed students

Important Information for Prospective JCC Students

Recent amendments to the Higher Education Act of 1965 requiring legal authorization for the delivery of distance education degrees, programs and courses to students whose physical presence is in a state other than North Carolina may limit Johnston Community College's ability to offer online opportunities to these students. The related regulations state:

"If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondenceeducation to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it isotherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution mustmeet any State requirements for it to be legally offering distance or correspondenceeducation in that State. An institution must be able to document to the Secretary the State's approval upon request." ~Chapter 34, 600.9(c)

If you wish to enroll in one of our online offerings and are located in a state other than North Carolina, please inquire before enrolling to determine if we are exempt or have authorization to offer online courses in your state. The college is unable to enroll students in an online course from a state for which it does not have authorization. You may direct inquiries to the Admissions Coordinator at 919-209-2049.
