Not many UNC-CH students sign up for new classes

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Officials at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill say there has been no rush by students and graduates to sign up for classes to replace fraudulent ones they took in the African and Afro-American Studies Department.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported (http://bit.ly/GKEZEB ) the university officials said only one student has signed up for a makeup course and one graduate has asked about them.

School spokeswoman Dee Reid says 46 students are at risk of not graduating unless they complete an extra course.

An investigation determined that 384 students and alumni took 39 fraudulent classes between 1997 and 2009 in the African and Afro-American Studies department.

The head of the department and a former department manager left the school in the aftermath of the investigation.
