SUMMER 2021

 

Beginning Fall 2021 the UNC System will eliminate the “stair-step” model that has been used to bill MAIN campus programs/courses for a number of years, and create an equal tuition rate for MAIN campus and distance education programs/courses. This means that all enrollment beginning Fall 2021 will be billed at a per credit hour rate.

  • Tuition will  be charged up to 12-credit hours of enrollment for undergraduate students.
  • Tuition will be charged up to 9-credit hours of enrollment for graduate students.
  • Any semester enrollment beyond these caps will not be billed additional tuition.

For fee-charging purposes, a distance education program is one where 80% or more of the direct instruction of the program is delivered through distance education or off-campus means.

  • Specifically, students in programs designated as Distance Education will be assessed the campus security fee, the education & technology fee, and the Student Government Associate fee.
  • Students enrolled in programs designated as On-Campus (MAIN) will be assessed all mandatory fees.

Some programs have differential tuition and/or program specific fees. Programs with these charges can be found on the schedule of tuition and fees. 

JUST DROP IT

Remember
...if you decide not to attend a class you are registered for, you must drop it. Not dropping before the posted add/drop date can have academic and financial implications.

*UNCW Student Accounts still reserves the right to drop classes for non-payment.

 

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.

Audit

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.

NOTE:

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.
