Distance Learning Information for Out-of-State Students

Many U.S. states require post-secondary educational institutions to be legally authorized to provide post-secondary educational instruction in their states. Many of these state laws and regulations also apply to online, distance, and correspondence educational instruction offered in that state. As such, Haywood Community College (HCC) and its online and distance education programs and courses must be authorized in certain states prior to offering those courses or programs to students residing in those states. Activities include online learning, non-classroom experiences, faculty members who live outside of North Carolina, proctoring, professional licensure and marketing.

HCC reserves the right to refuse admission to any applicant who is not a resident of North Carolina who seeks to enroll in any distance education course if the applicant resides in a state where the college is not authorized to provide distance education. Thought we strive to connect you with the best information possible, HCC cannot confirm whether a particular program meets requirements for professional licensure and/or certification outside the State of North Carolina.

Licensure and Certification

If you are considering a program at HCC that leads to licensure or certification and you do not live in North Carolina, please contact the coordinator listed for your desired program. Documentation for each program is available by selecting the name of the program which is linked to a PDF file. If you do not have a PDF reader on your device, we recommend downloading the free Adobe Reader @ https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
