Tuition & Fees


See the University Cashier for updated tuition and fee rates for a specific academic year. Tuition is dependent on the number of credit hours taken each semester and your residency.

Business Program Enhancement Fee

Once admitted to the Undergraduate Business Program (UBP), you will be charged a Program Enhancement Fee (PEF) per semester, which covers many aspects of the undergraduate program: student programming and scholarships, expanded student advising, career, study abroad and wellness services, and club funding, to name a few. As of the Fall 2023 term, majors are charged $1,000 per term and minors are charged $500 per term. PEF will begin the semester you are enrolled as a major or minor within the UBP. Students pursuing the Real Estate minor are also charged PEF. The fee is administered each semester you are enrolled as an UBP student.

UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Undergraduate Business Program is the last public, top-25 ranked (by Bloomberg Businessweek)  undergraduate business program to implement a differential fee or tuition.  Private schools do not charge a similar, differential fee as the revenues from their much higher tuition negate the need. Even with the fee, the UBP remains the lowest cost undergraduate business program of all our peers.

What if I face financial hardship because of the fee? 

UNC’s Financial Aid Office will automatically calculate additional financial aid required as a result of the fee and UNC Kenan-Flagler will directly reimburse student accounts for eligible fee charges.

If you have completed the financial aid process through UNC’s Office of Scholarship and Student Aid, and financial need has been determined, you will automatically receive an offset to cover the fee.

Admitted students facing financial hardship as a result of the fee, are encouraged to reach out via this form.
