How do UNCG’s tuition & fee rates compare nationally? For the twelfth year in a row, UNCG was ranked among the nation’s "best value” public colleges by The Princeton Review, an honor earned by only about 15 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges. In addition, Forbes Magazine included UNCG in its 2010 list of America’s Best College Buys. The university was listed 37th among 100 colleges and universities in the United States.
College Board Study of Undergraduate Tuition & Fees College Board annual study of average undergraduate costs of tuition and fees at four-year public colleges ( data): The in-state cost of tuition and fees at public universities averaged $7,605 in comparison to UNCG's cost of $4,926. For non-residents, the cost of tuition and fees at all public universities averaged $19,595, in comparison to UNCG's non-resident cost of $16,687. It's easy to see how The Princeton Review and Forbes concluded that UNCG offers an outstanding value.
What is tuition? Tuition (along with state appropriations) supports the cost of delivering instruction, academic support, and essential administrative infrastructure.
How would tuition increase revenue be used? UNCG CITI Proposal Total of approximately $4.5 million Funds would remain at UNCG to support: Financial Aid $1.1 million (25%) Graduate Awards and Waivers $0.2 million (5%) Offset Budget Reductions in Faculty $3.2 million(70%)
Potential UNC Greensboro Reductions 5% Reduction$8.6 million 10% Reduction$17.2 million 15% Reduction$25.8 million
What are Fees? UNC system Board of Governors authorized campuses to charge “general fees,” “fees related to the retirement of debt,” an “ASG fee,” and several special fees. Fees support student programs, services, and facilities on the campuses for which state funding can not be used.
What are Fees? “General fees” are – Activities – Athletics – Educational & Technology – Health “Fees related to the Retirement of Debt” – Facilities Fee Other Fees – “ASG fee” – Transportation
What Does It Provide? --Student Activities Fee
What does it provide? --Athletics Fee Fee supports most costs of UNCG’s Division I intercollegiate athletics program. Some cost is met by revenue and by endowment income. Maintenance of athletics facilities is supported by the student activities fee.
What does it provide? --Educational and Technology Fee Educational = formerly “course fees” Technology = partial support of IT for student class and out-of- class use
What does it provide? --Facilities Fee Pays-off the debt incurred on “capital projects” when student facilities are built or renovated—for example: – Soccer stadium – Student Recreation Center – Baseball stadium – EUC renovation – Student Health Center expansion/renovation (**Facilities fee does not include residence halls, dining or parking facilities; these are paid by users.)
What does it provide? --ASG Fee Association of Student Governments of the 16 UNC campuses supports and advocates for the concerns of students
Who Pays General Fees? Students pay fees along with their tuition each semester. Exceptions: – Distance learners who take no courses on campus pay only the Educational & Technology Fee. – Graduate students enrolled in fewer than 6 credit hours and undergraduates enrolled in fewer than 9 credit hours have the option of paying the health fee or they could pay for services at the “market rate” of the Greensboro community.
