Before enrolling in an online, hybrid or virtual course, please ensure that you:

  • Have a working knowledge of the Internet, email, and basic word processing skills.
  • Have regularly available access to a computer with a reliable connection to the Internet.
    • Computers are available for on-campus use in the Library. Please contact the Library at (252) 451-8248 for more information.
  • For virtual courses, have access to and a working knowledge of a webcam.
  • Be highly self-motivated and self-directed. Nash Community College’s online courses are equivalent to traditional courses in academic rigor and student requirements. Students should not view an online course as “easier” than traditional courses. In fact, successful students often find online classes to be more challenging than traditional classes, due to the additional reading and personal discipline that is required. Before attempting an online class, it is highly recommended that the student has successfully completed, or placed out of, all fundamental courses. Online classes require advanced reading comprehension skills and are intensive in reading and writing.
