Military Tuition Benefit

 If you are active-duty or military dependent and you do not qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, you may still be eligible for the Military Tuition Benefit.

 Under this special North Carolina statute, members of the armed services stationed in North Carolina on active duty and their dependents may be eligible to pay a reduced tuition rate which is equivalent to the in-state tuition rate.

 You must file a special application for the benefit that includes an affidavit on official letterhead confirming active military status and duty station and military dependent status if applicable

VA Education Benefits

If you will be using your Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, the maximum amount approved by the VA for North Carolina public universities is sufficient to cover in-state tuition and fees but NOT out-of-state charges We can help you get your bill figured out and help you defer your payment if you have financial aid or VA benefits waiting.

We can help you get your books if you are waiting on your financial aid or VA benefits to pay out In order to place any type of hold on your account, our office must have all VA documents in your file.
