Visiting Courses FAQ
Which courses can I take?
You can take select courses for elective credit from colleges and universities that are affiliated with our technology partner, 2U, Inc. All core MBA@UNC courses must be taken at MBA@UNC.
Will I receive credit for taking these classes?
Yes. UNC will accept credit for select courses offered by participating universities as transfer credit, with the exception of courses from the University of Southern California Rossier School of Education and the University of Southern California School of Social Work. You can transfer up to 8 credits. Credits are granted by the course-providing institution. UNC will determine eligibility of all credits earned through cross-university courses, so check with your student support advisor before you register.
How can I enroll for these classes?
You will enroll as a non-degree seeking student at the course-providing institution. Your student support advisor will be able to tell you more and walk you through the registration process.
How do I pay for these classes?
You will be billed by the course-providing institution at the school’s current per-credit rate. If you have questions about costs and billing, contact your student support advisor.
Can I apply my financial aid toward these courses?
You may be able to use your MBA@UNC financial aid package to fund your cross-university courses. However, fellowships specific to MBA@UNC may not be applied to courses from other universities. If you have questions about financial aid, contact your student support advisor.
What if the school’s semester schedule is different than MBA@UNC’s?
You will attend courses on the schedule dictated by the course-providing institution. The MBA@UNC course schedule only applies to MBA@UNC courses.
How will the online learning experience be different?
The online learning experience will be very similar to your experience with MBA@UNC. These schools also partner with 2U, the technology company that supports our virtual campus. This means all classes will be live, online and taught by university faculty. Like UNC Kenan-Flagler, these schools have also partnered with 2U to create their course content, so you will continue to benefit from immersive, dynamic self-paced coursework.
Please note that each participating university has established its own set of guidelines and restrictions governing this pilot program. Any specific questions regarding these guidelines are best answered by contacting an admissions representative from the program you are interested in.
