Tuition and Fees

The UNC Board of Governors establishes the tuition and fee structure for the program during spring of the prior academic year. The cost of attendance varies semester to semester contingent a students enrollment (full or part-time), residency status (resident or non-resident), and associated university and program fees.  The University has developed a matrix to assist students in projecting the annual cost of attendance.  It should be noted that the matrix does not include incidental expenses such as transportation, parking, housing, etc.
