Students fund their education through a combination of sources including loans, fellowships and awards, assistantships and grants. Several.awards and scholarships are supported by generous contributions from donors to the School and University who value the current and future contributions of our students.
- UNC’s MHA program has among the lowest per-credit costs of any peer program. As you consider offers from other schools, think through the following:
- What would be the total tuition cost for each program I’m considering given their tuition rate and the number of credit hours required?
- Does each program I’m considering charge a flat-tuition rate for full-time graduate students? UNC charges full-time graduate students for 9-credit hours per semester, whether they take 9 or 16 credit hours in that term.
- What is the cost-of-living differential between the programs I’m considering? UNC’s Graduate School provides this page for cost references.
Office of Scholarships and Student Aid
The UNC Office of Scholarships and Student Aid advises and assesses and approves students for a variety of financial aid opportunities. These include scholarships, grants, and loans.
Funding from the Graduate School
The Graduate School offers resources that are designed to help students compete for internal and external grants and fellowships critical to the financial support of our graduate students.
Costs and Residency
Tuition and Fee information can be found on the Office of the University Cashier's website. You can also view your student account and bill in Connect Carolina. Residency information can be found on the University Registrar website.
Additional Awards and Student Funding
Student funding awards typically become available to our department in mid-February and are distributed to students shortly thereafter. This means that students who apply early in the admissions cycle (December, January, early February) and are accepted may receive an acceptance letter before we have funding offers ready to distribute. We will be in communication throughout the admissions process to keep you updated on funding awards and their status.
