NOTICE TO ALL STUDENTS ENROLLED IN INTERNSHIP OR PRACTICUM COURSES**

Appalachian State University participates in a student insurance program with other constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina. Most, if not all, internship hosts require professional liability insurance prior to a student's participation in an internship or practicum. Appalachian requires coverage for all students enrolled in internship or practicum courses, except student teaching. The premium for this coverage ($15.00 per semester or summer session) is charged to each student's account along with other registration fees. A certificate of insurance will be furnished to each student or internship host upon request. Additional information can be found at: www.registrar.appstate.edu/internship.html

TUITION SURCHARGE

Undergraduate students who initially enrolled at Appalachian in the Fall, 1994 and thereafter, must comply with North Carolina Session Law 321-89 (Senate Bill 27) and 769-17.10 (Senate Bill 1505). In 2009, the General Assembly (Senate Bill 202 - Section 9.10b) increased the surcharge rate from 25% to 50%, beginning Fall 2010. This legislation requires a tuition surcharge on: 1) all credit hours in excess of one hundred and forty (140) when taken as part of the student's first baccalaureate degree; and 2) all credit hours in excess of one hundred and ten percent (110%) of the number required for a second or subsequent baccalaureate degree. Included in the calculation of surcharge hours will be 1) all coursework attempted at Appalachian (i.e., courses earned, courses failed, courses repeated, and courses dropped after the UNC system “census” date published in the academic calendar), and 2) all coursework transferred to Appalachian from other institutions. Excluded from the calculation will be credit by examination, advance placement credit, military credit and credit earned through an extension program or during the summer at any member institution of the University of North Carolina. (Note: Every baccalaureate degree at Appalachian requires a minimum of 122 credit hours; Appalachian does not offer a baccalaureate degree that requires more than 128 credit hours.)

RESIDENCE STATUS FOR TUITION PURPOSES

The State of North Carolina, by statute, requires a one year period of domicile (permanent residence) immediately prior to the academic term for which in-state status is claimed. Please understand that domicile requires more than mere physical presence in the State; the student must be able to demonstrate conclusively that physical presence was accompanied by the intent to be permanent. Applications for in-state status are available at the Office of Admissions, first floor of John E. Thomas Hall or at http://www.registrar.appstate.edu/residency/. NOTE: If you are currently classified as a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes, but no longer permanently reside in the State, you are required by law to so inform the University. Notification should be directed to the Registrar's Office. Please indicate the date on which you ceased to reside in North Carolina.
