A legislative mandate to raise tuition reve
nues by 13 percent throughout the UNC sys
term will push up the cost of undergraduate
education at Carolina, UNC Vice Chancellor
. for Business and Finance john L. Temple said.
The UNC General Administration has drawn
up a proposal to be presented to the Board
of Governors at their meeting July 30 and 31,
The proposal calls for a 20 percent increase
for in-state undergraduates which would raise
tuition from $364 to $436. Out-of-state stu
dents' tuition will rise by 9 percent from
$2,074 to $2,260, Temple said.
Temple said the increases were in line with
increases at the other schools in the UNC
The increases are the result of inflation,
John R. Tate Jr. said. Tate is the chairman of
the Board of Trustees' Committee on Needs
The legislature also appropriated $43.6
million to the UNC system for renovations
and new buildings. The Board of Governors
will allocate the money at their J uly meeting.
The tuition is only part of the cost of a
Carolina education. Proposed fees for the
academic year are: -
Athletic $50 ,
Health Service $134
Student Activities $30.50
Student Union Building Debt Service Fund
Student Health Service Building Debt
Service Fund $12
The total fees proposed to the Board of
Governors are $257.50 for each student per
year. This is added to the tuition rate to de
termine what a student pays. If the Board
approves all of the proposed increases, an
in-state student would pay $693.50 and an
out-of-state student would pay $2,517.50.
"Nobody is going to be in favor of an in
crease in tuition," Student Body President
Scott Norberg said. "But, there is no other
place in the country where you can get this
quality education for that low cost"
Norberg said the tuition had not been in
creased in five years.
However, Norberg pointed out that the
cost of an education was rising while, the
money available for students to pay for it
The UNC Financial Aid Office estimated
the increases when making awards for the
coming school year. But, Eleanor Morris of
the Financial Aid Office said, "We estimated
little low and we're not going to have the
money to make up the difference.".
Morris said that the office estimated the
in-state tuition to be $425, $11 short of the
proposed figure. The estimate of out-of-state
tuition at $2,200 is $60 short of the proposed

an agreement between UNC and the U.S. Department of Ed
ucation. He also received a leI memorandum opposing the
decree from Joseph L Rauh Jr. of the NAACP Legal Defense
Fund, and another document from UNC lawyers and U.S.t
Justice Department attorneys $upportin3 the decree.
Dupree said he would take th matter "under advisement"
until he hid time to review the fl'in-s. "I plan to tike action
on thb matter this week " he said.
The News 2nd Observer reported that John R. Jordan Jr.,
chairman of UNC Board of Ccvernors, said Dupree could sln
the decree, reject it or call in lawyers from both sides for
more information on the case.
William C Friday, President of the UNC system, said he
was not disappointed that Dupree had not acted on the de
cree. "After 11 years I learned not to be disappointed with
the delays I take it all in stride," he said.

at the University's five predominantly black campuses and
