POL - 30.02.2 Tuition, Fees and Deposits Policy
The purpose of this policy is to affirm the duties and powers of the body that administers the University's tuition, fees and deposits. Pursuant to authority vested in it by the General Statutes, and consistent with the provisions of The Code of the University of North Carolina, the Board of Governors have delegated to the Board of Trustees of the constituent UNC institutions several duties and powers, one being Tuition, Fees and Deposits.
2.1 The Board of Trustees of the constituent institutions shall cause to be collected from each student, at the beginning of each semester, quarter or term, such tuition, fees and other amounts necessary to pay expenses for the term, as have been approved by the Board of Governors [G.S.116-11(7) and G.S.116-143]
3. Tuition and Fee Deposits
3.1 The Board of Trustees shall require payment of such advance deposits, at such times and under such conditions as it determines are appropriate or as may be required by state law of by the Board of Governors.
4. Application Fees
4.1 The Board of Trustees shall require the payment of such nonrefundable application fees, in connection with each application for admission, as may be required by state law or by the Board of Governors. [G.S.116-143]
5. Acceptance of Obligations in Lieu of Cash
5.1 Subject to policies prescribed by the Board of Governors, the Board of Trustees shall establish regulations concerning the acceptance of obligations of students, together with such collateral or security as may be deemed necessary or proper, in lieu of cash, in payment of tuition and fees. [G.S. 116-143]
6. Fee Recommendations
6.1 Subject to policies prescribed by the Board of Governors, the Board of Trustees, in consultation with the chancellor, shall recommend to the president the amounts to be charged at the institution for application, athletics, health services, student activities, educational and technology, retirement of debt incurred for capital projects authorized by the General Assembly, course, and special fees. In carrying out this responsibility, the Board of Trustees and the chancellor shall ascertain that the benefits of the activity or service are commensurate with the recommended fee which is required to support the activity or service. Recommended fees should be consistent with the philosophy set forth in the North Carolina Constitution which states that the benefits of the University of North Carolina should be extended to the people of the state free of expense, as far as practicable.
