Tuition & Required Fees for High School

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.

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

In-State High School Students:

* For in-state high school students, tuition is provided free of charge. 

** The majority of the other billed educational costs for in-state high school students (e.g., textbooks, health and wellness services, room and meal plan, activities, etc.) will be covered by the North Carolina High School Artists Grant, which is credited to the student’s account at the time of billing each semester. The remaining billed costs are the responsibility of NC students and their families and should be paid by the due date each semester. The 2023-24 academic semester direct cost to NC families is estimated to be $1,865, for commuter students and $3,730 for residential students. The estimated cost to NC families is reassessed at the end of fall semester prior to billing for spring.
