Tuition Surcharge

The North Carolina General Assembly imposes a tuition surcharge on those students initially entering the University of North Carolina system as undergraduates if they take more than 140 attempted hours to complete degree requirements. Students seeking a second baccalaureate degree are allowed attempted hours to 110 percent of degree requirements before the surcharge is imposed. Students who exceed the attempted credit hour limits within the equivalent of four academic years of regular term enrollment, or within five academic years of regular term enrollment in a degree program officially designated by the Board of Governors as a five-year program, are not subject to the surcharge. The tuition surcharge approved by the General Assembly is 50 percent of the cost of tuition.
