NC university board considers no tuition hike

Posted: Updated:
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -

North Carolina's public university system is about to do without tuition increases next year for undergraduates who live in the state, though out-of-state students would see higher costs.

The University of North Carolina's governing board voted Friday on plans to hold tuition costs steady for state residents. Fees would rise by an average of 4 percent, some of the lowest in five years.

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

Lawmakers did not require higher tuition for non-resident undergraduates at UNC-Charlotte and North Carolina State University. N.C. State is asking for a 9 percent increase, Charlotte does not want an increase.
