UNC-Chapel Hill Tuition Goes Up 6.5 Percent

Tuition is going up at UNC Chapel Hill. The Board of Trustees voted today to raise it by 6.5 percent, the maximum allowed. The increase translates to about $300 more per year for in-state undergraduate students. UNC student body President Hogan Medlin says students knew an increase was coming. "I think it actually says a lot as to why you haven't seen a student protest here today (at the meeting). I think students on this campus understand the current budget situation, there's no doubt about that," he said. Other UNC system schools also are expected to raise tuition by the maximum 6.5 percent.
