Budget cuts may mean fewer graduate students will come to UNC from other states.
Every year, some out-of-state students receive tuition remission. That means their tuition is reduced to the in-state rate. So, instead of paying $11,000 a semester, they pay only $4,000 and the university pays the difference.
But the budget proposed by the House this week cuts all state funding for tuition remission, and some grad students say with less money for tuition remissions, UNC could lose its elite status.
