Online Courses

The Swain Center has relationships with Ed2Go and VESi, two well-regarded online educators to provide convenient and affordable learning opportunities.

Ed2Go - Instructor-led Programs

Ed2Go provides students with courses that can meet job requirements or lead to personal growth in a convenient and self-paced way.  The Ed2Go course delivery system has been used at UNCW since 2002 for its online, non-credit short courses.  These six-week courses can serve as an introduction to higher education and connect students to the university without requiring registering as a for-credit student. 

Please note: the link above will take you to the Ed2Go site where you can select your course and register. You will then be directed to a UNCW site to provide payment. Successful completion of these courses qualifies the student for CEUs only. Courses do not qualify for academic credit from UNCW.

Ed2Go - Certificate Programs

UNCW Swain Center, in partnership with Ed2Go, offers online open enrollment programs designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional level positions for many in-demand occupations. The certificate programs are designed by a team of professionals from each respective field, providing you with effective web-based learning programs. Instructors/mentors are actively involved in your online learning experience, responding to questions or concerns, as well as encouraging and motivating you to success.
