CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s public university system is writing a budget for next year that includes no tuition increases for undergraduates who live in the state and raises fees by an average less than any time in the past five years.
The University of North Carolina’s governing board on Thursday began weighing plans to raise fees that pay for athletics, health services, student activities and technology by an average of about 4 percent next fall. There would be no increase in tuition for the 2014-15 academic year if the UNC Board of Governors approves the plan next month.
The 17-campus UNC system is under pressure from state lawmakers to do more with less money from taxpayers and students.
