UNCW Fee Structure for IMBA Program

Cost of the IMBA program. The cost of the IMBA program is paid to UNCW in fall for students who will be attending UNCW for their core classes and in spring for students who will be attending UNCW for their specialization classes and thesis.

Refunds. Students who withdraw from the program after the add/drop date will not receive a refund of the program fee.

Cost of extended enrollment. Students who do not complete their theses by the end of the second fall semester will be subject to a per semester fee until the thesis is completed. The fee differs based on whether students are completing their theses at UNCW or a partner university. The partner school may have other fees in addition to those charged by UNCW. Note that summer is treated as a single semester for the purpose of calculating fees.

Required continuous enrollment. Students are required to remain continuously enrolled until the thesis is completed. Students may apply for a leave of absence if they do not want to continue in the program.

Maximum term of enrollment. The maximum enrollment is 5 years. A student who does not complete the degree in 5 years will be dismissed from UNCW and will be required to reapply for the program if he/she wants to complete the dual degree program.
