Many other courses and languages are available through the UNC Online World Languages Exchange. There are courses offered in beginning Arabic, Chinese, Persian, Swahili and Hindi/Urdu. There are more courses outside the exchange, but these may result in additional tuition charges while those inside the exchanges will not. Interested students should contact the chair of Foreign Languages and Literatures prior to enrolling, since not all courses found there will automatically transfer correctly to satisfy foreign language requirements (for languages ECU does not offer, courses 1001-1004 would need to transfer in as FLGC "Foreign Language General Credit"), and courses above 1004 level equivalence may not have ECU equivalents.
Students should be aware that there is no guarantee that all courses found there will be offered from level 1001 or in a timely fashion needed for graduation, or that courses will use the same textbooks or articulate completely with ECU courses, since they are offered by other universities. (That is, there may be a completely different textbook to buy and different expectations of prior material covered, so it is not recommended to go in and out of ECU course sequences using courses from other universities). The importance of registering for courses inside the UNC Online "Exchanges" is that you should not have to apply for DE admission to the host institution, and you should not be billed for tuition and fees there. Your ECU tuition and fees are supposed to cover courses piloted under this DE exchange trial.
