About Microbiology Online

Microbiology Online is a program in the Department of Biological Sciences at North Carolina State University (NCSU). We deliver high-quality, online microbiology courses that are taken by on-campus and off-campus students alike. All courses available through Microbiology Online provide college-level credit documented by an official transcript from an accredited institution.

Our courses are taken by on-campus students enrolled in degree programs at NCSU, as well as by off-campus, non-degree studies students. Off-campus students may elect to take one or more individual classes to meet their specific needs. Or, those who wish to obtain a microbiology credential may enroll in the Microbiology Undergraduate Certificate, which can be obtained through completion of entirely online coursework.

Microbiology Online also offers advising services for current and prospective off-campus students. We can provide help in choosing a course, academic support for a course in-progress, and offer advice on a plan of study.
