The following pages will guide you through the course registration process. Keep in mind that the Advising Team is here to help you navigate this process as well! Be sure to contact your academic advisor if you have any questions.

Course Planning

Students should work with their advisor to determine the best path to program completion, given academic, professional, and personal needs. Take note of the course suffixes listed below to ensure the course are available at your desired location. 

Course Suffixes

  • Courses that have a .000 suffix (e.g., MBA 522.001) are on the main campus;
  • Courses that have a .600 suffix (e.g., MBA 522.601) are at RTP or are Online.


After registering for your classes, be sure to check MyPack Portal for your tuition bill, which goes out electronically. 

If you register after the deadline, you are required to pay a late fee in addition to your tuition. You must pay all tuition and fees on time. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of your course schedule. 

Please note that employer reimbursements are now considered taxable income. You can find details about tuition and fees information on the university Cashier’s Office website.

Understanding Tuition

There are different tuition structures between the Main Campus and RTP/Online. Tuition costs on the Main Campus are by BANDS of credit hours. Students pay one price for 3 to 5 hours, a higher rate for 6 to 8 credit hours, and pay a tier higher for 9 or more credit hours.

Because RTP is off-campus, it is considered a “distance education” program and therefore falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education. The Online program also falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education, wherein students pay for ACTUAL credit hours taken.


  • Billing is completely separate for Main Campus vs. Distance Education;
  • For example, if you take 6 hours on Main Campus and 1 hour at RTP/Online, you will get two separate bills.
