Tuition and Fees Schedule
The program can be pursued on a full time or a part time basis. For all UNC staff and for many employees of organizations in the RTP area, some or all courses can be paid for through employee training benefit programs (please check with your employer or check with us!).
Tuition and fees will depend on the number of credit hours that a student decides to enroll in any given semester (i.e. 0-2.9 hours, 3-5.9 hours, 6-8.9 hours or 9 and above).
The following schedule shows the tuition and fees per semester, for both resident and non-resident students.
