Current Students

Engineering student at CCC works on project.


You may sign up for NC State engineering classes as a Havelock Engineering student or as a visiting student while still a Craven Community College (CCC) student.

All students who plan to take NC State courses in Havelock must meet with a local advisor to discuss prerequisites and degree planning. Once you have met with an advisor, you can begin the process to enroll as described below.

Non-Degree Seeking Students

To begin taking site-based NC State engineering courses before you have been admitted to the University, you must register as a visiting or non-degree seeking student (NDS). This means you are taking courses without having been admitted into a degree program, so the courses you take will not qualify for financial aid will. Contact a Havelock Engineering advisor at for information on this process.


Engineering Developmental Assistance Program

NC State alumni Ramsey Davis and Holly Tucker earned their engineering degrees from the 2+2 site-based engineering program in Havelock, North Carolina.

The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Fleet Readiness Center-East (FRC-East) on board MCAS Cherry Point has a continuing need to develop highly qualified engineers to perform many specialized functions. The Engineering Developmental Assistance Program (EDAP) is a program that offers qualified students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while serving as a resource for the Command to develop highly motivated employees.
Selectees will be placed in positions in which they will receive work assignments and professional experience in an engineering or related discipline while pursuing a four-year degree in an engineering or scientific curriculum at a local college or university.
Tuition assistance may also be available. Students interested in EDAP should apply through the Pathways Intern Program for Summer Hires, and more information will be provided during the first summer of work.

Pathways Intern Program for Summer Hires

Applications for internships are accepted in January of each year via the USAJobs website. Students work throughout the summer. Local students have the potential to work year-round with supervisor approval and may be given the opportunity to enter the EDAP program.

Department of Defense SMART Scholarship

SMART is part of the National Defense Education Program. Students who are selected to participate in this program earn tuition and education expenses, along with cash awards ranging from $25,000 to $38,000 per year, depending on degree level. Applications will be accepted until mid-December, with award notification occurring each spring. For additional information, please visit the SMART website.


There is both local and Raleigh-based assistance available to Havelock Engineering veteran students. 

If you are a CCC student taking NC State courses, contact the CCC VA representative for assistance in certification.  CCC will be your home institution until you have been admitted into NC State.  If you are taking courses at both institutions in the same semester, the NC State and CCC VA representatives will work together to certify you for the total number of credit hours you are taking.

All NC State students using VA benefits must certify through their MyPack Portal prior to registering for classes.  For the purposes of VA certification, site-based courses are considered seated, not distance education, courses.
