UNC System President Sees No New Tuition Increases

Students enrolled at North Carolina's 16 public universities a year from now can expect a pause in a decade of steady tuition increases.

The president of the statewide University of North Carolina system said Thursday he will recommend no tuition increases for state residents heading into the 2014-15 academic year.

In-state students paid an average of 9 percent more in tuition in the academic year that ended in May. Tuition increases by an average 4 percent for the school year beginning this month.

In-state students are paying 90 percent more in tuition and fees than a decade ago.

The state Legislature ordered tuition increases of 12 percent next year for out-of-state students attending campuses in Chapel Hill, Wilmington, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem. Out-of-state tuition will rise 6 percent at other campuses.
