A new requirement for the UNC system will hit many students where they may already be hurting, in their bank accounts.
Starting in fall all UNC students, UNCW included, will have to show proof that they have health insurance. If they don't, they will have to buy insurance through the university in order to be a student.
Some say the decision to add this requirement is one that will affect many. "Thats more bills to pay, they're struggling as is. So it's benefiting some but it's really taking a lot of people down,” stated Quentin Johnson, a UNCW student.
