This week, UNC system president Tom Ross recommended in-state tuition at the system’s universities go up an average of just under 9 percent.

At UNC-Chapel Hill, Ross’ proposal would raise in-state tuition 9.9 percent.  That’s significantly lower than the 16 increase requested by UNC’s Board of Trustees. But it’s still a good deal higher than the 6.5 percent increase students faced in the 2011-2012 academic year.  Ross is proposing that out of state tuition at UNC-Chapel Hill go up 6 percent next year.
