Tuition Increases Possible In UNC System

University of North Carolina officials have unanimously approved a $3 billion plan to ask for a $168 million spending increase.

WRAL-TV reports that the Board of Governors on Friday approved the plan that represents a 5.8 percent increase.

All but about $50 million would go toward salaries, financial aid and public safety at the system's 16 universities.

Chancellors at the system's campuses have cut current budgets by 4 percent.

The board decided not to raise tuition last year, but University of North Carolina President Erskine Bowles said he expects campuses will ask for an increase now.

    Not surprised at all. They are having to cut back on things on campus to make their current budgets work.
