Tuition Surcharge • Law repealed as of Fall 2019. No longer discussed in ACA 122. • What it said: – Degree-seeking students who exceed credit hour limits towards their degree may be subject to a 50 percent Tuition Surcharge.
• The UNC Board of Governors defines exceeding credit hour limits as: – More than 140 degree credit hours to complete a baccalaureate degree in a four-year program or – More than 110 percent of the credit hours necessary to complete a baccalaureate degree in any program officially designated by the Board of Governors as a five-year program. • This a good thing for our transfer students.
