Keep in mind that many students receive fellowships — some valued as high as $25,000 — that reduce the cost of earning the degree. Fellowship awards are considered automatically as part of the application process; no additional forms are required.
* Prospective students must fulfill specific requirements to qualify as North Carolina residents for tuition purposes. For more information and to find the required residency application forms, visit the Office of the University Registrar website.

Tuition for the online format is $1446.36 per credit hour for the 2019/2020 academic year* plus travel expenses to the required Leadership Immersion, held in Chapel Hill.
The online format of the MAC degree is 36-48 credits, depending on your prior coursework. (Students who have previously completed courses in accounting or students who have completed an MBA from an accredited institution may be eligible for course waivers that will reduce the 48-credit requirement.)
In addition, fellowship awards — some valued as high as $25,000 — are available to qualified students. These awards, along with course waivers, military benefits, employer support, and external scholarships, allow many students to significantly reduce the overall cost of their degree.
* The 2019/2020 academic year runs from in July 2019 through June 2020. Please note that tuition is subject to change each academic year, as approved by the UNC System Board of Governors, and any tuition change is applicable to all enrolled students.
Online tuition includes student fees, simulations, assessments, technology platform licensing and technical support. Textbooks and travel expenses to optional events – recruiting events, Global Immersions, and graduation -- are not included.
