About Student Fees
Required student fees support programs, services, and facilities on the campus for which state funds are not available and/or cannot be used. Distance learners who take no courses on campus pay only the Educational & Technology Fee. Graduate students enrolled in fewer than 6 credit hours and undergraduates enrolled in fewer than 9 credit hours have the option of paying the health fee or they could pay for services at the “market rate” of the Greensboro community.
The student fee process begins with a panel of students and staff who meet from September-October each year. This committee shares their recommendations with the chancellor, who then shares the proposed fees with the university community at open tuition and fee forums. The chancellor uses the committee suggestions, comments from the public forums, and input from a variety of other sources to develop the tuition and fee recommendations that are presented to the Board of Trustees and the UNC Board of Governors.

A UNCG graduate student who is registered for 9 credit hours or more may audit one course per semester with no additional charge. A UNCG graduate student who is registered for less than 9 credit hours may audit no more than two courses per semester and will be charged a fee of $15 per course. A UNCG graduate student who is registered for no credit hours will be charged a fee equal to the in-state or out-of-state tuition and fee rate of a 0-credit hour course for each course audited.Registered auditors (persons not officially enrolled at UNCG) who do require a record of enrollment as an auditor should file a Non-Degree Seeking application with The Graduate School and follow regular registration and payment procedures. A fee equal to the in-state or out-of-state tuition and fee rate of a 0-credit hour course will be charged for each course audited. Fees are payable in full at the time of registration.
Visiting Non-UNCG Students
Visiting auditors are classified as non-UNCG students who wish to take a course(s) without receiving a record of enrollment. Such individuals must apply to register through UNCG Online – The Division of Online Learning. A visiting auditor will not receive a record of enrollment and is charged a $125 fee for lecture courses. Visiting auditors are admitted to lecture courses when space is available with the approval of the department head in consultation with the instructor teaching the course requested.
To audit a 600- or 700-level course, a student must hold a bachelor’s degree.
Residence Status for Tuition Purposes
The North Carolina Residency Determination Service (RDS) is responsible for determining the residency status of all individuals who claim to be North Carolina residents for tuition purposes.
