The University of North Carolina Board of Governors is meeting today to vote on tuition increases. A committee approved the increases for the 2007-08 academic year yesterday, and tuition and fees are expected to go up 5 to 6 percent at most campuses in the U-N-C system.
The increases are smaller than some in recent years.
System president Erskine Bowles had proposed a 6-point-5 percent cap on tuition and fee increases, and the U-N-C board endorsed the cap last year.
But the increase will be larger at some campuses -- such as 9 percent and Western Carolina University and 9-point-6 percent at East Carolina University. That's because fees that cover debt on some facilities are exempt from the 6-point-5 percent increase.
