Get More Out of Your 49er Family Experience

What is the Niner Nation Family Association?

Where Do My Membership Dues Go?

New Student & Family Services and UNC Charlotte truly appreciate your investment in our campus community. Your membership dues to the Association are reinvested in the 49er student experience through the Student Life Allocations process, which disburses grants each spring to campus departments for programs or initiatives that otherwise would not have funding. Awarded programs are high-impact and focus on improving the student experience. Previous grant recepients can be seen on the 49er Family Fund page. Additionally, your dues also support our continued development of resources, programs, and initiatives for family members focused on increasing knowledge, access, and involvement in your student's college experience.
