Arts Entrepreneurship Certificate Program – Tuition & Financial Aid


The online certificate courses are delivered as a UNC Extended Campus program.

For those who apply for and take only the Online certificate courses, this means:

  • A flat per-credit tuition rate for all students (in-state or out-of-state)
  • There are no student fees – they are incorporated into our flat tuition rate
  • Certain courses may carry specific course fees for additional services and materials

Program tuition for the 2018-19 academic year (which runs Fall, Spring, and Summer terms) is $270 per credit hour. Tuition for the 2019-20 academic year will be determined mid-June 2019.

If you are an already admitted UNC student:

Any online certificate courses you take through the Extended Campus delivery will be billed at the flat rate mentioned above, but if you are also enrolled for campus-based courses for the same term you will be billed for those courses at your campus rate plus any student fees related to that enrollment.

Financial Aid

Certificate program students (non-degree seeking) are not eligible for aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Details about the federal aid program are available at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. Your program coordinator may be aware of your eligibility for any discipline or campus-based aid if available.

For more specific help, Extended Campus degree-seeking students may contact Adrina Pawlak in Financial Aid at OFA.Extended@unco.edu, 970-351-2502, or via the UNC Financial Aid website.

Students can also find helpful information such as the Guide to Federal Student Aid at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/resources. Most of the resources are available in English, Spanish, and Braille.
