Students with on campus sponsorships (ex: Graduate Support Plan, Department) must have their Advisor/Graduate Secretary complete the proper authorization before the billing due date. Departments sponsoring students on GSSP will notify the Cashier’s Office.

GSSP pays tuition only so you will need to pay the fees and any other charges posted on your account before the billing due date. Departments paying student charges not included in GSSP must submit separate payment form. If you have questions or concerns about GSSP or department payments, you must contact your department.

ROTC Sponsorships

The due date for first semester international students is January 19, 2021. The Office of International Studies will notify the Cashier’s Office of the students eligible for this exception.

New international students registering on or after December 22, 2020 will be required to pay in advance or provide proof of sponsorship. Failure to pay your student bill will result in late fees and will prevent further registration. This exception applies only to the first semester you are attending. You will be required to make payment for all future semesters by that term’s posted due date.

NDS Students

NDS students are not subject to a late registration (enrollment) fee. Students must first pre-pay for their anticipated charges prior to enrollment. After completing the prepayment transaction, please e-mail studentaccounts@ncsu.edu to have your hold released. The e-mail should state how many credit hours and the type of hours (distance education or on campus) they seek to enroll in.
