What is the Tuition Surcharge FAQ 2014

 

What is the Tuition Surcharge?

 

In 1993, the North Carolina General Assembly (Senate Bill 27, Section 89b) enacted legislation directing the UNC Board of Governors to impose a 25% tuition surcharge on students who take more than 140 degree-credit hours to complete the first undergraduate baccalaureate degree in a four-year program or more than 110% of the credit hours necessary to complete a four-year exempt or five-year program. In 1994, the legislation was modified to exempt students who complete the degree in eight (8) regular semesters or the equivalent (or ten semesters for a five-year program). Effective fall 2010, the surcharge increased to 50%.

 

UNCSA degrees are designated four-year exempt programs

Most UNCSA baccalaureate degrees require more than 128 credits, so instead of calculating the surcharge on 140 credit hours (110% of 128 credits), it is calculated on 110% of the credit hours required for each degree.

Who is affected by tuition surcharge?

All undergraduate degree-seeking students admitted to UNCSA beginning fall 1994 are affected. The surcharge applies to transfer students, in-state and out-of-state students. Students enrolled at UNCSA prior to fall 1994 are exempt.

What credits count in the 110% calculation before the surcharge applies?

  • all semester (fall and spring semester) academic credit hours attempted (includes withdrawals, repeated, replaced, forgiven and failed course work); and
  • all transfer credit hours excluding summer courses.

Is there anything that doesn’t count in the 110% credit hour limit?

The undergraduate credit (semester) hours to be excluded in the calculation of the tuition surcharge are:

  • College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) credit;
  • College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or similar programs’ credits;
  • Credit earned through any UNCSA advanced placement;
  • Credit earned in summer sessions;
  • Credit transferred to UNCSA from non-constituent institutions or community colleges prior to August 2013;
  • Credit earned while enrolled as a high school student;
  • Credit dropped during the first week of classes during add/drop;
  • Credit approved for withdrawal with extenuating circumstances.

What if a student has exceeded the allowable credits but graduates in 4 years or fewer?

The 110% semester hour limit applies only to students who take longer than eight regular semesters to earn a four-year baccalaureate degree or ten regular semesters in a degree program designated by the Board of Governors as a five-year program. Transfer credit is included in this calculation.

How much will the tuition surcharge be?

The surcharge is 50% of the tuition (in-or out-of state tuition only, not fees) for the hours a student has attempted in access of 110% of the credits required for his or her program (minus the credits that do not count).

How will transfer credit affect the semester hour limit?

Transfer credit will count toward the 110% semester hour limit with the exception of summer credit.

What if a student attends summer school at a community college in North Carolina?

All credits earned at a community college with the exception of summer sessions count in the 110% semester hour limit.

How and when would a student be billed?

The surcharge is calculated just after the close of add/drop each semester. A bill is sent via email to the student for the hours in excess of 110% (minus credits that do not count). If the hours exceed 12 credits, 50% of the full-time tuition rate will be billed.

Is there an appeal process for tuition surcharge?

Students may request a waiver for military service obligation, serious medical debilitation, disability, or other extraordinary hardship, as defined under BOG 1000.1.5 [R]. Appeal forms are available on the Registrar website.

Submitted by the Office of the Registrar

THE MAZE RUNNER based on a popular young adult novel of the same name, opens in theaters this weekend but was first imagined for the screen by some of our students as part of

the Kirkus Reviews Book Video Awards program. In 2009, then 4th year students Nick Gonzalez, Jordan Taratoot, and Brighton Linge, along with a team of their peers created a trailer for the book and were finalists for the Book Video Award. Random House commissioned more trailers for other books from this team (now Run ‘n Gun Films) based on the strength of their work for THE MAZE RUNNER which was optioned to become a film the following year in 2010..

 

For a look at how Nick, Jordan, Brighton and team first envisioned THE MAZE RUNNER, years before it was produced, please see their Book Video Awards finalist trailer:

News From Design & Production

 

The School of Design and Production’s Costume and Wig and Makeup Programs, along with students and faculty from the School of Filmmaking, recently participated in a multi-day interdisciplinary set of seminars, workshops and panel discussions with industry professional guest artists. One of the goals of the project was to identify greater potential collaborative opportunities between D&P and the Film School, including D&P’s work on the 4th year student films this year.

 

Key elements of the program included:

  • Helping introduce D&P students to some of the primary differences in terminology between the medium of live theatre and that of filmmaking and technology;
  • Discussions of a film’s pre-production, production and post-production processes, as well as continuity;
  • Meetings between D&P students, the guest artists, and the nine individual creative teams for the 4th year film projects, in order to begin discussions of the respective projects.

 

The seminar also afforded all student participants, from both schools, the opportunity to begin to develop ongoing professional relationships with those outside of their respective disciplines. The project was funded by a generous grant from the Kenan Institute.

 

Project participants included:

 

School of Design and Production faculty: Bill Brewer, Christal Schanes, and Michael Meyer

 

School of Filmmaking faculty: Stephanie Colopy, Bob Keen, Bob Gosse, Carol Wood, and John LeBlanc

 

Guest Artists/Panelists:

Rich Robinson (Director, Writer and Producer), Meriwether Snipes (Costume Designer), Jonathan Judge (Director), Chris Field (Costume Designer)

 

Also special thanks to Deans Susan Ruskin and Jamie Call Blankinship, and Renata Jackson for their assistance and support of the project.

AHERA Report

 

9/1/2014

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Staff:In the past, asbestos was used extensively in building materials because of its insulating, sound absorbing, and fire retarding capabilities. Virtually any building constructed before the late 1970s contained some asbestos. Intact and undisturbed asbestos materials generally do not pose a health risk. Asbestos materials, however, can become hazardous when, due to damage or deterioration over time, they release fibers. If the fibers are inhaled, they can lead to health problems, since as cancer and asbestosis. In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) which requires schools to be inspected to identify any asbestos containing building materials. Suspected asbestos-containing building materials were located, sampled (or assumed) and rated according to condition and potential hazard. Every three years, UNCSA has conducted a reinspection to determine whether the condition of the known or assumed asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) has changed and to make recommendations on managing or removing the ACBM. At the last reinspection conducted on 7/23/14, all materials listed in the Management Plan as asbestos containing (or assumed to be asbestos-containing) were inspected and found to be in good condition. The law further requires an asbestos management plan to be in place by July 1989. UNCSA developed a plan, as required, which has been continually updated. The plan has several ongoing requirements: publish a notification on management plan availability and the status of asbestos activities; educate and train its employees about asbestos and how to deal with it; notify short-term or temporary workers on the locations of the asbestos containing building materials; post warning labels in routine maintenance areas where asbestos was previously identified or assumed; follow set plans and procedures designed to minimize the disturbance of asbestos containing building materials; and survey the condition of these materials to assure that they remain in good condition.It is the intention of the School of the Artsto comply with all federal and state regulations controlling asbestos and to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure students and employees a healthy and safe environment in which to learn and work. You are welcome to review a copy of the asbestos management plan in the Environmental Safety and Health Office during business hours. Xavier Dick the Director of Environmental Safety and Healthis our designated asbestos program coordinator, and all inquiries regarding the asbestos plan and asbestos-related issues should be directed to him at 336-631-1539

UNCSA Preparatory Dance Program is “Leaping Toward The Future” in its 40th year with a re-launch of our program! We have launched our first ever Indiegogo Campaign, and in its first week we are already 25% funded! The Prep Program currently receives no State funding, and contributions will go to fund new performances, the Dayna Fox Scholarship Fund, and bring dance to our community and the nation. Donations will help students who may not otherwise be able to afford training be exposed to the arts! Please join us in this exciting time of growth!

2015 STATE HEALTH PLAN ANNUAL ENROLLMENT

 

If you want to stay on the health plan that you already have, you do not need to re-enroll in that health plan. However, if employees enrolled in the Enhanced 80/20 Plan or the Consumer-Directed Health Plan wish to maintain or lower their premium they will need to complete wellness premium credits. If you do not complete the wellness activities and are enrolled in the Enhanced 80/20 and the CDHP, you will remain in that plan; however, your employee-only premium will be higher.

 

 

 

Get a jump on Annual Enrollment by completing your Health Assessment early.

The Health Assessment (HA) is a brief questionnaire used to assess members’ health history and lifestyle choices. By completing an HA before the end of Annual Enrollment, members enrolled in the Enhanced 80/20 Plan and the Consumer-Directed Health Plan (CDHP) will not only lower their monthly employee-only health insurance premium, but will also:

  • Identify health risks early
  • Receive personalized action items to improve their health and well-being
  • Track and compare their biometric measures year after year
  • Gain access to helpful NC HealthSmart resourcesHow to Complete the Health Assessment:To Complete the HA Online:
  • The HA can be completed online by logging into the Personal Health Portal or by phone.
  • Reminder: Annual Enrollment is Oct. 1-31, 2014. While the Health Assessment is one way to lower monthly premiums, members will need to access their enrollment system to complete the other premium credits and to make any changes to their enrollment.
  • Visit the State Health Plan website at www.shpnc.org
  • Click the NC HealthSmart box in upper right hand corner of the page
  • Log in to the Personal Health Portal or create an account (members will need their insurance card to register on the Portal)
  • Once in the Portal, click on the “My Health” tab on the left side of the screen
  • Select “Health Assessment”To Complete the HA Over the Phone:

News From Design & Production

John Coyne (Director, Scene Design Program) was featured in the most recent (September 2014) issue of American Theatre magazine.  The article discusses his set design work this past summer on Dallas Theater Center’s production of Les Miserables.

Will Taylor (Director, Visual Arts Program) and Clyde Fowler (Emeritus Faculty, Visual Arts) are presenting an exhibition of their work beginning tonight at the Inter_Section Gallery located at 629 N. Trade Street.

Since 1975 there has not been a single student enrolled in the Visual Arts program that did not study drawing with either Will or Clyde. In addition to their dedication to arts education and the mission of UNCSA, they both have explored and expanded their individual creative ideas and visual concepts as professional artists. Although their art may reflect a difference in approach and resolution, their imagery is based on a belief that the creative process should be continuously questioned and re-assessed, a philosophy which also serves as the foundation for their interaction with the young artists in their classes.

 

Please join Will and Clyde this evening for their opening night reception from  7 pm – 10 pm as a part of the First Friday Gallery Hop.  The exhibition runs from 9/5/14 – 10/31/14.
