New Student Registration fee: If you are not a student or employee at UNC-CH and this is your first Carolina Courses Online course, you will be charged the New Student Registration fee of $45. At the end of our online enrollment system, you will be asked to supply your credit card information or mail a check. This fee is non-refundable.
After you have enrolled in a course through Carolina Courses Online, you will be notified by the Student Accounts office when your bill is ready. This notification will be sent to your UNC-Chapel Hill e-mail address; it will include information on how to view your bill online and how to make payment. If you have questions about the Connect Carolina billing process, visit Student Billing. If you have questions about fees, fines, holds, or other aspects of your bill, visit Student Account Services. Information on third-party payment options can be found at Student Account Services under “Our Services.” UNC employees may use the tuition waiver program.
Tuition and other charges are subject to change, based on legislative mandates. It is possible for tuition to change for a particular semester after students have enrolled. If this happens, you will be billed for any increases, and any overpayments will be refunded.
Fall 2013 tuition and fees have not yet been set by the NC State Legislature. Updated tuition and fees will be posted as soon as the information is available.
UNC-Chapel Hill full-time and part-time students may enroll, but both must pay the separate course tuition for CCO courses. This is in addition to the tuition paid for classes taken on campus in the classroom.
Carolina Courses Online (CCO) do meet the same credit stipulations as any on-campus course, so they may be used toward total credit hours for a semester. In other words, a 12-credit-hour full-time course load could include one 3-hour CCO course and nine credits from on-campus classes.
Tuition does not include your textbooks or the cost of subscribing to an Internet service provider. Enrollment is limited, and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you take a course that requires a proctored exam, please be aware that you may be charged a fee for proctoring your exam by the site where you arrange to take the exam. The use of proctored examinations is one method UNC uses to verify that the students who get credit for a course are the ones who took the course.
