About These Costs

These costs have been developed as guides to help students anticipate their expenses at UNC Chapel Hill. Some students will spend more than the typical amounts, others less, depending on individual lifestyles and circumstances.

A student’s eligibility for financial aid, however, is based on this standard budget allowance. Costs for an upcoming academic year are updated and posted after estimated budgets for books and supplies, food and housing, and personal expenses/transportation are determined by the University. They may be updated again, if necessary, after the legislature sets the final costs for tuition and fees (typically late summer).
