The information on this page is for students no longer enrolled in classes at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Before separating from UNC-Chapel Hill, it is expected that your student account be paid in full.

Individuals no longer enrolled at the University with an outstanding account balance over 30 days past due are subject to collection processes. Once the collection process begins, students are notified by letter that they have an outstanding balance with the University. A second collections letter is sent 30 days after the first letter.

A HOLD is placed on the student’s account to prevent registration, obtaining transcripts and/or diploma until the balance is paid in full, as required by the State of North Carolina. There are no exceptions to releasing holds with students who have an outstanding balance with the university.

The University does not accept settlement offers on debts owed.

Monthly payment plans are available to students whose accounts have been placed in collections.

Plans are based on the amount that is owed to the University (see below).

$3,000 – $4,999 18 Month Payment Plan
