Many other courses and languages are available through the UNC Online World Languages Exchange. There are courses offered in many less commonly taught languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Ancient Greek, Hindi/Urdu, Latin, Persian, Portuguese, and Russian and upper division or summer offerings in many of the common languages. Interested students should contact John Stevens, the campus coordinator of online language offerings 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 1001-2004 would need to transfer in as FLGC "Foreign Language General Credit"), and courses above 2004 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). You should be able to register for courses through UNC Online and have the hours billed as part of your regular campus bill. No additional application for admission to the host campus is necessary.
Admission of applicants outside the State of North Carolina to an online degree, certificate or individual online course offered by East Carolina University, is dependent on ECU's ability to secure authorization from the applicant's state of residence, if such authorization is required. East Carolina University delivers online education programs and courses throughout the United States and internationally. All programs have been approved by the University of North Carolina General Administration. Many states have prescribed an authorization process for out-of-state institutions delivering online programs to its state residents to ensure quality post-secondary education, to preserve the integrity of an academic degree, and to instill greater consumer protection for its student citizens. East Carolina University has taken steps to protect its students and programs through nationwide compliance by: participating in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA); obtaining authorization, approval, exemptions and waivers; or confirming that East Carolina University can operate without such authorization because the state's laws do not pertain to a public institution, to an accredited institution, or to the ECU's activities in that state. On November 14, 2016, East Carolina University was approved by to participate in NC-SARA which is a voluntary, regional/national approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. Institutions that participate in SARA are authorized to provide online education to students from all SARA member states. States and institutions that choose to become members of or participate in SARA operate under a set of policies and standards overseen by SARA and administered by the four nationally recognized regional higher education compacts.
