The UNC Graduate School announced a new mandate on March 7, 2019, updating University guidelines for payment of mandatory graduate student fees. The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) has identified the standard fees that may be charged to Federal research funding and the table of allowable student fees is posted on the OSR Website in Forms & Tools.

New Budgeting Guidance

  • Allowable student fees may be escalated up to 5% (typical is 3%); consult your OSR Sponsored Projects Specialist or SPO Grants Analyst for consideration of any other escalation levels
  • Allowable student fees are exempt from Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs
  • Account codes are being created for Allowable student fees (available by Fall 2019)
