Fall 2016/Spring 2017 Academic Year: Full-time Study

(1 semester = 15 weeks, 20 hours per week, Monday – Friday)

The amount paid to UNC Charlotte for ELTI classes and student fees is $5,291.50 (Items A and B below). This does not include all costs that students will have.

A. ELTI Tuition


B.  UNC Charlotte Student Fees
(fees are mandatory and allow ELTI students to use all UNC Charlotte facilities and services)

These charges must be paid by all students at the University, and ELTI does not control these fees.


C. Housing and Meals: Fall Term

These costs are reasonable estimates. Housing and meal costs will vary according to individual choices.  Students who choose to live on the UNC Charlotte campus will pay housing and meal costs to UNC Charlotte. Students who live in privately-owned apartments will pay monthly rent to the property owner.

$3,800 – 5,000*

D. Books

$200 – 275*

E. Health Insurance
(Health insurance is required: if purchased at UNC Charlotte, the cost will be about $1,150)

$850 – 1,150*

*Costs are best estimates at this time and they may change.

Part-time study: Students who are not in the U.S. on student visas (which require full-time study) may enroll in one or two of the three daily classes.

Payment Timeline
Tuition and UNC Charlotte Student fees must be paid during the registration period. Checks, money order, or cash must be in U.S. dollars. You may also use a valid MasterCard, American Express or Visa credit card. For bank wire transfers, contact the ELTI office staff first.

Sponsored Students
Sponsoring agencies must provide an official letter of sponsorship covering the period of enrollment. Students must have this sponsorship at the beginning of the term of study, or pay their first semester costs and be refunded later, once the sponsoring agency has offered a financial guarantee AND paid the bill.

Please Note: ELTI students may NOT participate in the UNC Charlotte payment plan. All payments for ELTI  students follow ELTI (not UNC Charlotte) schedules.
