As students converge on Chapel Hill to resume stud

ers returned to the town's dealers. These U-Hauls
have been accumulating at Suttle's Texaco at Uni

Check receiving procedure changed
By MARK ANCONA
DTH Staff Writer
The UNC Student Aid Office has insti
tuted two procedural changes for students
who" will be receiving financial ,aid,
Eleanor Morris, director of student aid at
UNC, said recently.
One change involves howa, student
receives a check from the Student Aid Of
fice. In the past, students would apply for
aid and, during the summer, if the appli
cation was approved, the office would
notify the student when to pick up the
With the new procedure, students are
sent forms in the summer to fill out so the
Student Aid Office will know which stu
dents are accepting the grants. Before, it
was assumed that any students approved
for allocations would accept the funds.
"I think the new procedure will be a lot
more effective," Morris said. "Now we
ask students to mail us back notification
that they will want their award.- It will
. save us a lot of trouble in the future."
Morris said the new procedure was in
stituted for two reasons. One is to make
the process easier in the fall.
"All students will have to do is pick up
their checks with the new procedure,"
Morris said. "There will be a reduction in
the size of the lines, and it will get stu
dents through the process a lot faster." -
The second and more important reason
for the change is because the old process
"We need the money so much now that
things are a lot tighter due to the (federal
budget) cuts," Morris said. "Before, we
wouldn't know until school started who
would not be using the loans, and all the
check's were already printed. The new
procedure gives us time to do something
with the money that is not going to be ac
cepted' (i.e., award it to other students
who were previously rejected).
"I think that we will be able to have a
better idea on how we are spending our
The second procedural change will af
fect students while they are waiting in line
for their checks in front of Vance Hall.
This year there will be two counselors
stationed outside with two lists. One list
will include students whose checks are
ready, and the other will have the names
of students who still must fill out their
forms to receive their checks.
Morris said that stationing the counse
lors outside would ensure that students
would not have to wait in line as long as
in previous years and that they would also
know what they needed to do before en
tering the office.

be fulfilled due to loyal investors in North Carolina, Broadway
But, as is the case with student aid at UNC, all late applica
tions for loans will have to be turned down.
"In past years a student could be serviced if the student turned
in a late application because revenues were adequate. But now
we cannot help late applicants," Broadway said.
There also has been an 82 percent increase in the number of
applications received by the College Foundation because of the
inadequate amount of funds available at the various colleges and
universities, which has caused further problems, he said.
"The primary purchasers of these types of bonds (education
bonds) are the banks," he said. "We have very loyal investors in
North Carolina. They have all been trying to make an effort to
contribute as much as possible." "" ' -
These investors should help provide the foundation with ap
proximately $35 million to allocate this year, Broadway said.
"We are optimistic about approving all the loans on the dead
line group," Broadway said. "Our forecasts show we will be able
to fulfill all these loans."
Lahgston is also optimistic about the chances for all deadline
applications being fulfilled. v .
"We are a lot more optimistic now than when we first heard
about the cuts," he said. "1 don't think the students that don't
get a loan will suffer that much. There is a history at UNC that
students are a lot more resilient to these types of cuts than other

Chapman sentence to foe given today
" The Associated Press
NEW YORK Mark David Chapman,
who admitted killing former Beatle John
Lennon last winter outside the musician's
home here, is to be sentenced today after
a hearing that will focus on his mental
Chapman, a 26-year-old former mental
patient described as a "born-again"
Christian, an avid Beatles fan and ama
teur guitarist, rejected his lawyer's advice
