With a 529 College Savings Plan, the parent/student accesses funds and initiates a payment to the University. Every state (including Washington, DC) offers a state section 529 plan.

Please visit your 529 plan’s website to see what information is required to support a withdrawal request. All 529 plans have different forms and request different documents. Parents and/or students must contact their 529 plan administrator directly and follow their procedures to process a withdrawal.

If your plan requires a copy of your eBILL as proof of qualified direct educational expenses, you may print your statement from ConnectCarolina.

Contact your 529 provider(s) at least ten business days prior to the tuition due date to ensure the University receives payment by the deadline. We recommend that 529 plan checks be sent directly to the University.

Checks should be made payable to UNC-CH and reference the student’s full name and nine (9) digit PID.

Mail your check to:
