Tuition Surcharge

Are you planning to transfer to a 4-year university in North Carolina?

If so, you need to know that …

… in 1993, the NC General Assembly instructed the UNC Board of Governors to impose a tuition surcharge on students who a) take more than 140 degree credit hours to complete a Baccalaureate degree in a four-year program, or b) take more than 110% of the credit hours needed for a five-year baccalaureate degree program.
