501.1 - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Procedure on Departmental Payment of Student Charges


Tuition, fees, or other awards for students, are entered into GradStar.

GradStar is a ConnectCarolina Student Administration application designed to collect and report all non-service fellowships, tuition, and fee awards given to a student in support of their attendance at the University.

In order to gain access to GradStar a user must complete FERPA training, request access through InfoPorte and attend GradStar training.

Forms and Instructions

Please refer to the Graduate School staff and faculty policies page for detailed procedures.

Students expecting to receive departmental funding should request deferment of the initial term bill through their ConnectCarolina Student Center. This will provide a short extension to allow time for the department to enter the award and for it to be processed. Once the award payment is received in the University Cashier's Office, it is applied to the student account. Additional extensions are only available on an exception basis at the request of the funding department.
