Tuition & Fees

UNCG charges tuition and fees based on a sliding scale depending on classification as either undergraduate or graduate courses and the number of credit hours in which you are enrolled. The cost of the program will depend on whether or not prerequisite courses are required, course choice, and enrollment status.

A student that meets all prerequisite requirements and plans to complete the graduate-level coursework in one calendar year, will typically take 12 credit hours in the fall and spring and 6 credit hours in the summer. Based on the available 2017-18 tuition and fee scales, the estimated program cost is $16,000 for in-state students and $34,000 for out-of-state students.

A student that meets all prerequisite requirements and plans to complete the graduate-level course work under the evening option, will typically take 6 credit hours per semester. Tuition and fees for 6 graduate accounting credit hours are approximately $3,800 per semester for in-state students and $9,000 per semester for out-of-state students.
