A person who is a full-time employee of The University of North Carolina, or is the spouse or dependent child of a full-time employee of The University of North Carolina and who is a legal resident of North Carolina, qualifies as a resident for tuition purposes without having maintained that legal residence for at least 12 months immediately prior to his or her classification as a resident for tuition purposes.

  • If you, or your spouse is a full-time employee, not a Teacher’s Assistant, Research Assistant, Post-Doc, or Resident/Fellow of the UNC System, you may qualify for the employee tuition benefit.
  • UNC Health Care employees also qualify.

Note: that you must be continuously employed during your enrollment in order to receive this benefit.

If you believe you qualify for this benefit, please complete the Residence Status Supplemental Form for UNC Employees and their Families
