How do I know when my tuition and deposits are due?
Deposit and Tuition Due Dates
A $250.00 mandatory non-refundable tuition deposit is required for all new AND returning students each term. This deposit is required to secure a place in a program, and is also required before students can select a timetable. The tuition deposit is part of the student’s tuition fees, and reduces the tuition owed. There are no service charges in this amount. Click to view due dates
Your tuition invoice can be viewed through the My Financials section of MyNC. See: My Financials Navigation
