UNC Could Seek Maximum Tuition Rate Increase

A panel at North Carolina's flagship public university has recommended raising tuition the maximum 6.5 percent to dampen expected cuts by the Legislature.

The finance committee of the UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees advised Wednesday the full board OK the increase to take effect next fall. The full board meets Thursday.

The proposal could raise undergraduate in-state tuition and fees by $360 to about $7,000 per year. Out-of-state rates could be $1,570 higher.

The 6.5 percent is the most a University of North Carolina campus can seek for in-state rates. The UNC Board of Governors would still have to sign off. Lawmakers could allow higher rates as they did this year, when UNC-Chapel Hill in-state tuition rose $950.
