Online and Distance Education tuition charges are based on the student’s academic program and course enrollment. Most Online/DE students pay a Standard DE Rate, either Undergraduate or Graduate and either North Carolina resident or nonresident. Some courses and programs, including Undergraduate Engineering Online (such as online computer science), Graduate Engineering Online, Master of Business Administration, and Doctor of Design, are billed at higher rates. Visit NC State’s Distance Education Tuition Rates page for detailed information about tuition and fees.
Financial aid eligibility is determined by the Financial Aid Office. Generally, a student must be admitted to a degree program (not a certificate program) to qualify for financial aid; most financial aid is in the form of student loans. We encourage you to contact your financial aid advisor in the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. For additional information, visit NC State’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid website, or call 919.515.2421.
NC State also offers a monthly payment plan.
