Understanding the Program Budget

Line items on the budget sheet are sorted into two sections: 
  • Cashier Billed Expenses: Cashier Billed Expenses are charges applied to your UNC Student Account. You will not pay tuition or program fees to your host institution abroad
  • Out-of-Pocket Estimates: In addition to the program costs paid to UNC, you will have expenses associated with travel and living expenses. These are estimated out of pocket expenses you pay yourself. 

Billing and Payments

Line items listed under Cashier Billed Expenses will be charged to your UNC Student Account. Charges and deadlines occur on the same timeline as billing for the term at UNC. See the University Cashier’s Important Dates page for more information.

Special Notes

Tuition & Fees: Students will be billed by UNC the program sponsor/host university tuition rates (rate listed is an estimate and is subject to change due to exchange rate fluctuations - charges to your student account may be adjusted once UNC receives the final invoice from the host institution, which may be after you have paid your UNC bill).

Program Costs: Housing in double rooms on-site. The cost for a single room is an extra charge. 

Application Fee: The Application Fee is non-refundable and must be paid by the Application Deadline. See your program application for more details.  

Study Abroad Fee: The Study Abroad Administrative Fee will be billed to your student account only if you accept an offer from the Study Abroad Office to study abroad. If you withdraw from a program after accepting the offer, you still will be charged in the same billing cycle. However, you may apply the paid fee to a future UNC Study Abroad program.
