Tuition and Fees (Cashier's Office)

Student Account Inquiries

All Questions Regarding Student Tuition, Fees, Payments, Refunds, etc should be directed to the Cashier's Office at 828.251.6664, you may find more information on the Cashier Web Pages.

Tuition Due Dates:

  • Fall semester tuition is due Aug. 1 each year
  • Spring semester tuition is due Dec. 15 each year
  • Summer term tuition is due May 20 each year

Above dates are for pre-registered students.  Pre-registered students are expected to pay any portion of their tuition, fees, room, and board that will not be covered by financial aid, scholarships, Voc Rehab, VA benefits, or a payment plan through Tuition Management Services by the due date shown.

Students who are not pre-registered will be expected to pay for classes on the day that they are allowed to register.

Student Responsibility For Charges:

The University of North Carolina at Asheville attempts to make sure each student is notified of charges to his/her student account. However, charges go on at various times throughout each semester depending upon when the student registers and the student’s particular activity.  Failure to receive a billing statement does not relieve any student from financial responsibility for charges on their account. It is the student’s responsibility to monitor their student account and to pay for any charges on their account in a timely manner. Failure of the student to pay charges on their account may result in not being able to register for future classes, not being able to receive a transcript and being assessed late charges and interest on past due balances.

Board Plan Charges

2014/15 Board (Meal) Plan: $ 1,837.00  


The University will review student accounts periodically for outstanding balances.  Student accounts with outstanding balances are subject to having holds placed on either registration, transcripts or both.  Students with a unpaid account balance of $49.99 or less are subject to a hold on their transcript.  Students with an unpaid account balance of $50 or more are subject to a hold on their registration and transcript.  Once a hold has been placed on a student's account the account balance must be paid in full in order for the hold to be removed.

Students should review their account for any outstanding balance and pay the balance promptly to avoid holds being placed on their account.  

Holds will not be removed for items that a student is appealing.  For example, if the student is appealing a parking citation that created a hold on the student's account, the hold will not be removed until the appeal has been approved and the citation reversed.  If the student pays a citation that is under appeal in order to remove a hold and the citation is subsequently reversed, the student's payment will be refunded to them.

Health Insurance Requirement

All students who are enrolled for 6 or more credit hours must have health insurance coverage. Students enrolled for 6 or more credit hours will receive a charge of $802.00 per semester for the UNC Asheville insurance coverage on their student account.

Students who have health insurance coverage can apply for a waiver of the insurance charge by going online at and providing their insurance information. Students must apply for the insurance waiver within 30 days of the beginning of the semester.

Students who are enrolled for 6 or more credit hours and who do not go online to apply for the insurance waiver or whose insurance waiver is not approved, will be required to pay the insurance charge for the semester and will be covered under UNC Asheville’s policy even though they have other insurance coverage.
