CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — Students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill say they’ll march in protest of a proposed 40 percent tuition increase.

Students with the “Strike the Hikes” coalition planned to meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the Pit outside of the student union and march to the meeting of the board of trustees at the Carolina Inn.

A news release says the coalition will deliver 1,000 signatures from the students against the proposed tuition increase for 2012-13.

One senior at the school says the proposed increase is a step toward making UNC-Chapel Hill more like a private school and would keep some students from graduating.

An advisory task force on Monday approved a proposal to increase in-state tuition by $2,800 over the next five years.
