Tuition and fees are assessed on a semester basis.

Accounts not paid in full by the due date are subject to cancellation of registration.

About Tuition and Fee Rates

See the University Cashier for the Tuition and Fee Rates for any specific academic year.

Tuition is dependent on the number of credit hours you take each semester and your residency.

Student Fees are recommended each year by the Tuition and Fee Advisory Task Force and pay for things like technology and scientific equipment, student health services, campus recreation, and other campus services.

North Carolina Residency for Tuition Purposes

Under state law, North Carolina residents are eligible for a lower tuition rate to state universities, including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

In order to qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, you must have established legal residence (or domicile) in North Carolina and maintained that legal residence for at least twelve (12) months prior to your classification as a resident for tuition purposes. Each student is classified as an in-state or out-of-state resident upon admission.
