Fixed Tuition Program

As a benefit to North Carolina students, the University of North Carolina System is implementing the Fixed Tuition Program as defined by North Carolina General Statute § 116-143.9. Beginning with the fall 2016 semester, tuition rates at UNC Asheville will be fixed for eight consecutive semesters for all resident (in-state) bachelor’s degree-seeking freshmen. Tuition rates for other currently enrolled resident undergraduates and eligible transfer students will be fixed for an appropriate number of consecutive semesters. Students are not required to be enrolled during the summer term(s) to maintain continuous enrollment.

The statute includes flexibility regarding the semester limit for five-year programs and students who demonstrate a substantial disruption in their pursuit of a degree. At this time, UNC Asheville does not have any five-year baccalaureate programs.
