Among the many rites of autumn is the annual process of determining tuition rates for the following year. At Carolina, that almost always means an increase, but perhaps not this time — at least, not for North Carolina residents.

Out-of-staters likely will not be so lucky. The N.C. General Assembly, in its session just ended, ordered 12.3 percent jumps in 2014-15 for nonresidents at Carolina as well as the UNC School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, N.C. A&T State in Greensboro and UNC-Wilmington. Out-of-state students at the other system campuses would see 6 percent increases.
Chapel Hill typically considers tuition levels with a chancellor’s task force, which makes recommendations late in the calendar year that are considered by the trustees and sent to the BOG for a decision early the next year.
The undergraduate rates for the current year are $8,340 for North Carolinians (including fees), up 8 percent from last year; and $30,122 for nonresidents, up 6 percent. In-state tuition has increased 105 percent over the past decade; the nonresident rate has risen 89 percent.
