Tuition & Required Fees for Graduate

Fees and tuition are for the entire (both semesters) 2023-24 school year. UNCSA does not require any additional charges associated with the verification of student identity. Bills will be distributed on or before Friday, July 7, 2023, for fall semester and Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2023, for spring semester pursuant to our multi-year billing calendar.

Tuition and most fees for part-time students are prorated based on 9 credit hours for full-time. See a break down for per-credit charges.

Note: Tuition and fees are subject to change and may increase each year depending on the NC Legislature budget bill.
