You aren’t officially enrolled until you submit your tuition deposit. Follow the instructions to submit your $150 tuition deposit ($300 if living on campus) and guarantee your spot at UNC Asheville. The sooner you make your deposit, the sooner you can apply for housing and register for classes.

After your enrollment deposit is processed, you will log back into your application portal to see an updated “Next Steps” list, including a Course Preference Form. Once you complete the form, you will receive your Registration Access Number (RAN) via email so you can register for classes. The earlier you complete the form, the earlier you will be able to register for classes. Learn more about advising and registration here.
