Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

UNC-Greensboro is one of the most affordable and conveniently located schools in the UNC School System.
Shantell
Comparing tuition to other UNC systems, UNCG offers a fair price to it's students. There are different meal plans that a student could apply for, and even different living arrangements that may vary prices. UNCG has a lot to offer for it's students, and the price of it all comes very affordable.
Christian from Fayetteville, NC
In state tuition is well low, even with parking and a high quality dorm the cost of living and other things, I live on campus for under 12,000 per year.
Ian from Durham, NC
As an out of state student, it is expensive. However, its better than most colleges and for instate students the price is great.
Kiri from Jefferson, MD
Really good for the cost.
Kasey from Mint Hill, NC
College is never cheap but I think pricing is decent since im paying about 11,000 a year for everything (meal plan, dorming, and tuition and other college fees)
Javier from High Point, NC
A great University education, plus many more opportunities that aren't offered anywhere else in the state, such as the study abroad program and International Student exchange. UNCG has more to offer at a lower cost than any other university in the state.
Michael from Summerfield, NC
Double majoring is the best way to get more for your money. Try to choose majors that are close together so they can be coordinated better. The dorms are Ok. I stayed in the highrises. The only issue I have ever had with the highrises is the noise. It is not to bad but it can be quite annoying at times. The best dorms are Ragsdale and Phillip/HawkinsThe food in the Cafe is not the best. It is buffet style with grills and stations around the edges. If you can be patient and wait in line at the grills and stations the food is pretty good. Not to mention the desert bar.

Tate Street Coffee on Tate Street is worth the seven minute walk from the Starbucks in the Student Center because they offer coffee and espresso products, sandwiches, pastries and other beverages for at least half the price of Starbucks. Tate Street Coffee is also the hot spot coffee shop for UNCG students, faculty, and other members of the community and they also offer jazz night, poetry meetings, and is a great place to meet up with someone without that awkward feeling!
Jake's Billiards up Spring Garden is a cheap and highly welcoming place for students now that their expansion and redecorating welcomes students of all ages and types for billiards, ping pong, darts, music, socializing, and dining!
Also, feel free to take a bus down Spring Garden Street to get to Lost Ark Video Games where they not only sell used video games of every single console, used and new vinyls, and gaming accessories, but they also have quite an assortment of vintage pinball machines, arcade games (old and new) for cheaper than Celebration Station!
Yum Yum Ice Cream parlor sits right on campus and has been here for almost 100 years serving the community cheap yet award-winning ice creams, award-winning hot dogs, as well as other beverages and foods for your choosing. Yum Yum's forever has a spot on UNCG's cultural identity!
