About Student Fees

The fee schedule is maintained by the Cashier and Student Accounts Office. A health service is required if living on campus regardless of hours and is optional for all others registered for fewer than nine hours.

What are student fees? Who do they support?

Required student fees support programs, services, and facilities on the campus for which state funds are not available and/or cannot be used. Distance learners who take no courses on campus pay only the the Educational & Technology Fee. Graduate students enrolled in fewer than six credit hours and undergraduates enrolled in fewer than nine credit hours have the option of paying the health fee, or they could pay for services at the “market rate” of the Greensboro community.

The student fee process begins with a panel of students and staff who meet from September-October each year. This committee shares their recommendations with the Chancellor, who then shares the proposed fees with the university community at open tuition and fee forums. The Chancellor uses the committee suggestions, comments from the public forums, and input from a variety of other sources to develop the tuition and fee recommendations that are presented to the Board of Trustees and the UNC Board of Governors.
