Distance Learning

Out of state student, please click here.

Distance Learning at Edgecombe Community College includes those classes that an individual can take anytime and anywhere in which classroom attendance is not required.


The online Curriculum classes compare to traditional classroom courses:

  • earn the same credit.
  • have the same quality and standards.
  • are fully accredited.
  • have the same course objectives.

Student support services (such as the library, student services, and financial aid) are available without being on campus.

The classes are best suited for mature, self-motivated students who have good study skills and do not need to be reminded to study and complete their assignments.

Continuing Education

Ed2Go online courses are offered through Continuing Education. These instructor-facilitated online courses are informative, fun, convenient, and highly interactive.

Ed2Go courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas (chat rooms), supplementary links, and more. All courses run for six weeks (with a two-week grace period at the end). Two lessons are downloaded each week.

These courses:

  • can be completed from your home or office, day or night.
  • start every month.
  • are 24 contact hours.
  • generate 2.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
  • require Internet access, email, and a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Unless noted, tuition per course is $65. Teachers may get approval for the courses for teacher renewal credits.

At the end of the course, you will receive an official letter of completion from Ed2Go and an official certificate issued by ECC’s Division of Continuing Education.

ECC also offers distance learning options in Public Saftey and an online GED program.

Distance Learning Complaint Process for Out-of-State Students

Edgecombe Community College (ECC) desires to resolve student grievances, complaints and concerns in an expeditious, fair and amicable manner. Students residing outside of the State of North Carolina while attending ECC who desire to resolve a grievance should follow the College’s Student Policies, or reference the ECC Student Handbook. However, if an issue cannot be resolved internally, you may file a complaint with your State. The Student Grievance Contact Information for Individual States provides phone numbers, emails and/or links to state education agencies. Edgecombe Community College is accredited by The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
