*In-state high school students: It is important to note that while tuition is covered, other campus fees still apply.

**UNCSA offers the North Carolina High School Artists Grant, which assists with covering most of the additional educational costs such as textbooks, health and wellness services, room and meal plans, and activity fees. This grant is credited to the student's account at the time of billing each semester.

Despite these grants, there will still be remaining billed costs for fees that are the responsibility of North Carolina students and their families. These costs should be paid by the due date each semester to ensure continued enrollment. It's important for families to be aware of these costs and plan accordingly.

UNCSA reassesses the estimated cost to North Carolina families at the end of the fall semester before billing for the spring semester, ensuring transparency and accuracy in financial planning.
