The cost for one term of the NC State Pathway Program includes the mandatory program fees listed below. Payment is due by the last day of orientation.

|Fee Type||Summer 2020*||Fall 2020*||Spring 2021|
|IEP Program Fees||$3,300.00||$5,280.00||$5,280.00|

*The Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 fees are based on the NC State Distance Education required fees.
**Nonresident of North Carolina tuition (4-credits)
Estimated Total Cost
|Fee Type||Summer 2020||Fall 2020||Spring 2021|
|Cost of Living**||$2,643.00||$7,928.00||$7,928.00|

Note: The IEP classes for Spring 2021 will be online. The program and university fees reflect this change.
*All IEP students MUST have health insurance. Students can choose whether to use the NC State Student Blue insurance or find an alternative option. Students are automatically enrolled but have the option to waive out if they have their own insurance. Failure to waive will result in the student being responsible for the fee even if the Student Blue insurance is not used. For the Spring 2021 semester, the health insurance requirement is waived because students are enrolled as Distance Education learners.
**Estimated living costs include approximately $250-300 for books.
Actual expenses per semester may be higher or lower depending on the student’s lifestyle.
Payment of Fees
- Payment is always due by the last day of orientation.
- Paying the fees on time is very important and if a student does not pay on time, they may be dropped from the program.
- Students will be shown how to pay through the NC State MyPack Portal during orientation.
- Sponsored students must email their letter of financial guarantee to the Cashier’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org before the payment deadline.
The NC State Pathway Program is an option for conditionally admitted students who meet specific eligibility requirements. Students must apply for the Pathway Program and not all students who apply will be accepted.
