Adams School of Dentistry: Policy on Student Financial Obligations

Unit Policy


Adams School of Dentistry (ASOD) Students and Residents are expected to meet all financial obligations to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ("University") and to the ASOD.

A. University

1. Tuition and Fees

Students are required to pay all University tuition and fees prior to the first day of classes. If payment is not received by the University Cashier's Office, the student's registration will be canceled and the student will be unable to attend classes or participate in patient care activities. After the tuition and/or fees have been paid, students will be able to register but will be charged a late registration fee.

2. Health Insurance

The University also requires students to maintain health insurance coverage. Students are required to waive with existing creditable insurance each semester or they will automatically be enrolled in the UNC System Student Health Insurance Plan, which is administered by Student Blue/Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. To waive or enroll/renew, visit the Student Blue website.

B. Adams School of Dentistry

Full payment for dental instrument leasing, copying fees, and gown sterilization fees is due at fall orientation. Students have the option to pay these ASOD charges in two equal payments by September 15 for Fall semester and February 1 for Spring semester. Other partial payment amounts (other than one-half) will not be accepted. Failure to pay ASOD charges will result in dismissal from the ASOD.
