The information on these pages is intended to help guide students through the Jenkins MBA course registration process. The Student and Academic Engagement Team welcomes your questions throughout the process. Please contact your academic advisor with any questions.

Course Planning

Course Suffixes

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


Once you have registered, check MyPack Portal for your online tuition bill. Tuition bills will go out electronically and tuition will be due by the due date on your bill. Please pay all tuition and fees on time; otherwise, your course schedule will be canceled. If you register during late registration you will be assessed a late fee in addition to your tuition, and your tuition and fees must be paid in advance of registering. For those of you who receive tuition reimbursement from your employers, that reimbursement is now considered taxable income.

Tuition and fees information is available on the university Cashier’s Office website.

Understanding Tuition

There are different tuition structures between main campus and RTP/Online. Main campus tuition is based upon bands of credit hours. You pay one rate for 3 to 5 hours, a higher rate for 6 to 8 hours and a still higher rate for 9 or more.

Because RTP is off-campus, it is considered a “distance” program and therefore falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education. The Online program also falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education. RTP/Online tuition is charged upon actual credit hours taken.


  • Billing is completely separate
  • Example; If you take 6 hours in Raleigh and 1 at RTP/Online you get two separate bills; ditto if you take 6 hours in RTP/Online and 1 hour in Raleigh.

To meet student needs, it is important for us to offer 1 credit hour courses at both campuses. We are aware of the problems that two tuition systems create for our students, and we will continue to do our best to make options available to you within the parameters within which we must operate.
