UNC system president sees no new tuition increases

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Students enrolled at North Carolina's 16 public universities a year from now can expect a pause in a decade of steady tuition increases.

University of North Carolina system President Tom Ross said Thursday he will recommend no tuition increases for undergraduate state residents heading into the 2014-15 academic year.

In-state undergraduates paid an average of 9% more in tuition in the academic year that ended in May. Tuition increases by an average 4% for the school year beginning this month.

In-state students are paying 90% more in tuition and fees than a decade ago.

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