Fee Committee
Discussion
The University of North Carolina
Establishing Tuition and Fees
• The constitutional provisions for setting
tuition are codified in General Statute 11611(7), which states, in part, "The Board (of
Governors) shall set tuition and required
fees at the institutions, not inconsistent
with actions of the General Assembly.”
• The UNC Policy Manual Chapter 100.1.1
https://www.northcarolina.edu/apps/policy/index.php?pg=vs&id=s474
Establishing Tuition
“Tuition is charged to partially defray the
costs of general academic and
administrative operations of campuses,
including academic programs and faculty
and administrative salaries and benefits.”
Establishing Fees
“Fees will be charged only for limited,
dedicated purposes and shall not be used to
defray the costs of general academic and
administrative operations of campuses,
including academic programs and faculty
and administrative salaries and benefits.”
Campus-initiated Tuition
• “Campuses may request increases in
tuition to provide revenue for specific
purposes and programs.”
• Revenues will be used to cover general
operating inflationary increases and
significant changes in fixed personnel
costs, strategic investments that improve
student outcomes, and faculty and staff
compensation.
Tuition and Fees Four-Year Plan
2015-16 through 2018-19
• Maximum tuition rate of increase for
resident undergraduate students shall be
5% per year.
• Allowable increases in student fees
required for all students, other than debt
service fees, are also capped at 5%
annually.
Tuition and Fees Four-Year Plan
• 15% cap on total tuition dollars for needbased financial aid.
• Combined tuition and fee rates for
undergraduate residents shall remain in
the bottom quartile of public peers.
• Combined rates for nonresident
undergraduate students should be market
driven and reflect the full cost of providing
a quality education.
Tuition and Fees Four-Year Plan
Tuition and fee rates will be set on a biennial
basis.
• 2015-16 and 2016-17 rates set in the winter
of 2015
• 2017-18 and 2018-19 rates set in the
winter of 2017
How do UNCG’s tuition and fee rates
compare nationally?

Board: “Average in-state published tuition
and fees at public four-year institutions
increased from $8,646 in 2012-13 t0

UNCG’s in-state undergraduate rates:

UNCG Tuition and Fee Process
• For the past two months, two committees have reviewed proposals
for campus-initiated tuition increases and student fee increases.
• Today’s forums provide opportunities for the campus community to
provide input before the committees make recommendations to the
Chancellor.
• Continued opportunities to provide input and feedback will be
available through November 11, 2014 using the following email
addresses:

What are the Guiding Principles* of the
UNCG Tuition Committee?
1. UNCG must remain affordable for its neediest
students.
2. UNCG must not significantly increase its rank
among the constituent UNC institutions in terms of
cost.
3. Recommended actions are believed to provide
positive contribution toward the quality of the
students’ educational/learning experience.
*These principles were established by UNCG’s first CITI Committee in Fall 2000 and
observed by each subsequent committee.
What would be the effect of a
1%-5% tuition increase?

How much revenue could be generated by a
Campus-Initiated Tuition Increase?
• 2015-16 Range
– $0 (assumes no CITI) to
$4.1 million (assumes 5%)
• 2016-17 Range
– $0 (assumes no CITI in 2015-16 or 2016-17)
to $4.4 million (assumes 5% in 2015-16 and
2016-17)
For 2015-16, each 1% CITI increase generates $820,000 in revenue.
For 2016-17, revenue generated is dependent upon actual increase
approved for 2015-16.
What are the revenue needs that have been
suggested to the Tuition Committee?
1. Strengthening student financial support
- Need-based financial aid
- Graduate assistantships
2. Retention of EPA faculty and professional staff
3. Improvement of student academic advising
4. Preserving quality across the University by offsetting years of budget reductions in functional areas impacting students and faculty
Suggestion #1
Strengthening Student Financial Aid
- Need based financial aid
What is the average debt of
graduates?
Not reporting: ECSU, NCCU, UNCC, UNCSA, and WSSU
Source: http://projectonstudentdebt.org/state_by_state-data.php
What is the three year student loan default
rate?
What is the current financial aid
situation at UNCG?
• UNCG currently allocates 13.9% of tuition
toward need-based financial aid
• Board of Governors has set a maximum
cap of 15% of tuition that can be used for
need-based financial aid
• UNCG could increase financial aid by
$865,000 and 15% of any tuition increase
to remain within the maximum allowed
Suggestion #1

infrastructure to help meet the goals of the
UNCG Climate Action Plan.
What does it provide?
Facilities Fee
• Pays off the debt incurred on “capital projects” when
student facilities are built or renovated—for example:

• Students pay fees along with their tuition each semester.
• Exceptions:
– Distance learners who take no courses on campus
pay only the Educational & Technology Fee.
– Graduate students enrolled in fewer than 6 credit
hours and undergraduates enrolled in fewer than 9
credit hours have the option of paying the health fee
or they could pay for services at the “market rate” of
the Greensboro community.

ACA; increase in travel costs; maintain program as close as possible
to status quo
Education: Inflationary increases for educational materials
Technology: Classroom Technology and refresh (upgrades) to the

How could the 2016-17
activity fee increase be used?
• The actual operating costs of the new recreation center (i.e.,
HVAC, maintaining equipment, etc.) are of course essential.
• Expanded programs and services will transform Campus
Recreation at UNCG.
• Student wages would be over $900,000 for both
undergraduate students and graduate assistants.
• New staff are required for the new aquatics program which
will be accessible to students far more than the current and
failing pool in Rosenthal.
• New staff will be required to manage special events and
reservations in SRC such as career fairs, concerts, banquets,
etc. as well as manage spaces for student organizations and
academic classes.
