Starting Fall 2014: Billing Policy

A full-time regular-term student is an undergraduate student that is enrolled in 12 or more credit hours of on-campus courses or a graduate student enrolled in 9 or more credit hours of on-campus courses. These students will be billed according to the Campus Rates for tuition and fees for all courses (including extension courses) and not billed at the Extension/Distance Education Rates.

Students enrolled in a combination of campus and extension courses (not meeting the definition of full-time regular-term student) will be billed at campus rates for main campus courses and billed at the extension rates for distance education courses (section 800).

Note: Full-time enrollment status may be determined differently for purposes other than tuition billing; i.e. financial aid.

Non-degree seeking students:

  • Non-degree seeking students who do not hold a bachelor degree shall be charged the appropriate undergraduate tuition rate.
  • Non-degree seeking students already holding a bachelor degree shall be charged the appropriate undergraduate tuition rate for any undergraduate level course and the appropriate graduate tuition rate for any graduate level courses taken.

Degree seeking students:

Will be billed at the student level for all courses taken-i.e., Graduate students enrolled in an undergraduate class will still be billed the graduate level rates for that class.

* Thesis courses are billed for 1 credit hour at the in-state distance education graduate rate.  Students enrolled in only thesis courses are not charged mandatory fees which cover the use of the campus recreation center. 
Students enrolled in thesis only will be charged for the use of the recreation center at the time of visit.


Auditors will be billed tuition and fees for audited classes. You may review additional information on the Registrar's website

Education and Technology Fee explanation

The Education and Technology Fee (ETF) advances the quality of learning experiences and outcomes for students. It does this by embracing emerging opportunities that differentiate the learning experience beyond what appropriated funding allows, while remaining accountable to students, the university, and the state, for return on technology investments.

Security Fee

To assist in Campus-based and UNC system-wide safety and new security initiatives, staffing and security measures.


For Distance Education/Extension courses that require proctored exams, there may be additional fees for the verification of student identity. Students may also be required to find an independent testing facility for these exams. Contact the course instructor for more information.
