Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance for a student is an estimate of that student's educational expenses for the period of enrollment. The cost of attendance for summer is $3,000 (NC residents). Your federal aid (grants, loans) cannot exceed this cost. Remember, cost of attendance is an estimate. Your actual summer tuition will partly depend on the number of credits for which you enroll.
