Online Education

Online Learning at Edgecombe Community College includes those classes that an individual can take anytime and anywhere in which classroom attendance is not required. Students who reside outside of the state of North Carolina should view the list of states in which ECC is authorized to operate.


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, students will receive an official letter of completion from Ed2Go and an official certificate issued by ECC’s Division of Continuing Education.

ECC also offers online learning options in Public Safety.

Online 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.
