Accounts Due

North Carolina law states that if you have an unpaid account for the spring semester or previous semesters you cannot enroll for any summer session until the account has been paid in full. The University will not under any circumstances make adjustments to or waive payment of tuition and fees in violation of this or other legal statutes.

Summer Billing

Summer I

Billing for Maymester/Summer I on April 12, 2024. Tuition and fees are due May 8, 2024. Students who need to register after April 12th will need to pre-pay tuition and fees in order to register for courses in Maymester/Summer I.

Payment Deadlines

To hold your early registration, please make your payment or deferment request by the due date. To defer payment based on pending financial aid, please complete a deferment request in the ConnectCarolina Student Center by the due date. Otherwise your registration may be CANCELLED, and you will need to pre-pay and register again. Payment plans are not available during summer terms.


Students registering for Summer I after April 12, 2024, are required to pre-pay. Students registering after May 31, 2024, for Summer II are required to pre-pay. If you need assistance figuring out how much to pre-pay, please contact the Cashier’s Office at or 919-962-1368. To be cleared for registration, submit IN ADVANCE your payment and/or documentation from the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid showing eligibility for financial aid.

Drops & Withdrawals

Please be aware that the time frame for refunds is shorter in the summer. This is because Summer School is self-supporting and relies on tuition revenues to pay instructors. Once the session starts, it quickly becomes too late to cancel a class due to a reduction in enrollment. Below is the refund schedule for summer:

  • Class dropped BEFORE the first day of the session: 100% credit of tuition and fees
  • Class dropped within the first THREE days of the session: 75% credit of tuition and fees
  • Class dropped on or AFTER the fourth day of the session: NO CREDIT of tuition and fees

Please understand that you will be financially responsible for the tuition and fees based on the above schedule, without regard to the reason why you are dropping the class.

Financial Aid

Visiting students enrolled in summer courses are not eligible for financial aid from UNC-Chapel Hill. Check with your home institution for potential assistance.

New or continuing students in good academic standing in a program leading to a degree from UNC-Chapel Hill may be eligible for financial aid during the summer. Contact the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid, CB# 2300, 111 Pettigrew Hall, 919-962-8396, or online by student status:

Financial assistance for summer graduation

Planning to graduate in the summer or thinking about it? You could be eligible for financial assistance through the summer degree completion program, a partnership with Academic Advising, Scholarships and Student Aid, and The Summer School. This successful program has been in effect for five years and provides an opportunity for more students to graduate in August.

Funding is limited, and available funds will be distributed on a first-apply, first-served basis. The amount awarded will cover your minimum degree requirements for graduation up to a maximum of 9 credit hours at either the resident or nonresident rate.

You become eligible for funding when you apply for summer graduation and enroll in all remaining degree requirements. The summer graduation application will be available starting March 21.
