Course Enrollment Process

Enrollment Dates:

Fall 2017 - Fall classes begin Wednesday, August 16, 2017.

Enrollment Process:

  • All students wishing to be registered in an Engineering Online (EOL) course must go to the Engineering Online (EOL) Student Center and complete or verify their information, then request registration. Once all of the requirements to be enrolled in a course have been met, EOL staff will register you. You will be able to see your enrollment in MyPack Portal.
  • In order for you to be enrolled in an Engineering Online course, you must be either a non-degree studies (NDS) student or been admitted to a graduate degree.
  • Residency Determination: Beginning February 20, 2017, UNC General Administration will manage and process all residency determinations. All NDS students requesting in-state residency consideration for tuition purposes are required to complete the North Carolina Residency Determination Service (RDS) form prior to completing the NDS application.


  • If you request enrollment and are not yet established as a student, we will lead you through the non-degree studies application process once we have approved you to enroll in the course you have requested.
  • As part of the enrollment process for non-degree students, you must submit an unofficial copy of your undergraduate transcript to in order to verify that you have the appropriate prerequisites for the course you have requested.
