Tuition and Fees

Tuition rates are reviewed by the University's Board of Trustees and the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina System and set annually by the North Carolina legislature. Fees are reviewed and approved by the University's Board of Trustees with final approval pending the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina System review.

Campus Type for Tuition and Fees
Appstate Online Courses:
Appstate Online courses can either be online or physically at another campus off-site from our Main Campus in Boone, NC.

Main Campus Courses: Main Campus courses are primarily on our main campus in Boone, NC; however some programs do offer online courses that are categorized as main campus and are thus charged Main Campus rates as approved by the UNC Board of Governors.

If you have questions regarding which campus type your course is prior to registering for classes, please consult your advisor or The Registrar's Office (for undergraduate) and Graduate Studies (for all other levels).  Once tuition and fees have been charged, The Office of Student Accounts can assist with explanation of the charges.  Please note that the Campus Type for a course is not determined by The Office of Student Accounts and we cannot answer questions related to why a specific course is coded as either Appstate Online or Main Campus.  Please consult your academic department and/or Appstate Online Offices for further explanation.
