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.

Supports UNCG’s participation in the UNC Association of Student Governments, which is a student-led organization committed to furthering educational opportunities and advocating for all students within the University of North Carolina system.
Supports most costs of UNCG’s Division I intercollegiate athletics program including the maintenance of athletic facilities, team travel, scholarships, student admission to athletic events free of charge (except basketball and post-season play events).

Covers UNCG students’ portion of the HEAT (Higher Education Area Transit). HEAT is the City of Greensboro’s university and college based public transportation system. Students may ride any HEAT or GTA (Greensboro Transit Authority) local bus fare free with their UNCG ID card. In addition, this fee supports the Spartan Chariot campus transportation shuttle system (Weekday Loop, Spartan Village Express, and the Evening Safety Shuttle) which operates during the Fall and Spring semesters. The shuttle serves to provide the campus with efficient and safe campus transportation, reduce vehicular congestion and decrease the demand for proximity parking.
This fee is mandated by UNC General Administration to fund campus security initiatives.
Supports health, counseling, and wellness services at the Anna Gove Student Health Center. Services include: primary medical care, women’s health, blood pressure checks, immunizations, allergy injections, flu shots, laboratory and digital x-ray, psychiatric care, pharmacy services, nurse clinic, sports medicine, counseling services, and wellness/health education programs. While medical office visits are pre-paid by this fee, there are charges associated with lab tests, x-rays, medications, etc. although these are often below the market rate within the Greensboro community if one received these services off campus.
The registration fee covers the cost of administration and support services provided during the registration process.

The graduation fee of $70.00 for Master’s, Specialist in Education and Doctoral candidates is payable in the Cashier’s and Student Accounts Office.  The Bryan School requires an additional $25 graduation fee.
