Spring 2021 Online Fees
As UNC has worked to pivot and respond to the rapidly changing impacts of COVID-19, we have endeavored to make sure our students do not bear the burden of addressing those changes. Prior to the start of the 2020-21 academic year, UNC made the decision not to charge online fees for courses that changed from in person to online as a result of COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
While tabulating our spring semester census numbers, such as total number of students, courses, and financial data, it was discovered that some students were erroneously charged online fees for spring 2021 courses that were changed from in person to online due to COVID-19.
The online course fee is $15 per credit hour. Students who are impacted will receive a credit to their student account. This fee should not have been applied to courses that were originally scheduled as in-person courses and suddenly shifted to remote delivery because of COVID-19.
This error occurred only for the spring 2021 semester. Students affected will receive an email from the Bursar’s Office within the next 24 hours, and accounts will be credited as early as this week. Students taking courses that were originally scheduled to be delivered online will not receive an account credit.
It is our intention to be as transparent and fair as possible as we navigate the constantly changing landscape due to the pandemic. We are working diligently to ensure unintentional charges are credited quickly to those impacted students.
If you have billing questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Bursar’s Office at 970-351-4UNC (4862) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
