Tuition Fee Schedules

Fayetteville State University is a publicly supported institution.  Tuition payments and other required student fees meet only a part of the total cost of the education of students enrolled.  On average, for each full-time student enrolled in an institution of the University of North Carolina, the State of North Carolina appropriated $11,292 per year in public funds to support the educational programs offered. 

The University of North Carolina Board of Governors adopted a Plan to make tuition and fee rates for undergraduate North Carolinians predictable and affordable.  Pursuant to the Plan, the maximum rate of annual increase for undergraduate residents for campus-initiated tuition is 6.5% and the increase in general fees (Athletics, Health Services, Student Activities, and Educational and Technology Fees) is 6.5%. Exceptions to the Plan were allowed to help address academic quality, to partially remedy the cumulative negative impact of several years of state budget reductions, and to help the University protect the quality of a UNC education.  Specific information, including maximum allowable increases in tuition and fees per academic year by UNC campuses is available at

Tuition and fee rates included in this bill are based on rates approved by the Board of Governors in February 2012. G.S. 116-11(7) requires that the Board of Governors set tuition and required fees at the institutions, not inconsistent with actions of the General Assembly.

Distance Education charges are independent of main campus charges, those students enrolled in 12 or more credit hours with main campus and in one or more credit hours with Distance Education will be billed at the full time rate for main campus and for Distance Education charges.  Students enrolled in a combination of main campus courses and distance education courses will be charged main campus fees according to their total registered hours each semester.

Students and parents can also find detailed information concerning the total cost of college at


Full time campus students who elect to add a Distance Education course to their schedule will be charged additional tuition and fees for those courses at the distance education rates in addition to their full time campus tuition.
