Officials say sufficient aid

need help paying an extra
tuition bill sent out recently.

According to a letter sent by
University officials, UNC students soon
will have full mailboxes and compara
tively lighter wallets.
The letter, written by Vice
Chancellor for Finance and
Administration Nancy Suttenfield, was
sent to all UNC students and explained
that students should expect to receive
two more tuition bills before the end of
the semester - the first of which accom
panied the letter.
The two tuition bills reflect a retroac
tive tuition increase that the Board of
Governors finalized Sept. 14. The
increase amounts to $47 a semester for
in-state students and $460 for out-of
Students will receive the first bill this
week for the additional tuition owed for
the fall 2001 semester, and then they
will receive a second bill - tentatively
scheduled to be sent in mid-November
- for the spring 2002 semester.
The second bill will include both nor
mal tuition and the increase recently
passed by the legislature. The payment for
the fall bill is due Nov. 15, and the pay
ment for the spring bill is due Dec. 10.
The exact increase was not finalized
in time to be included on the fall 2001
bill, and UNC officials say sending two
bills will be easier than sending just one
that would include the spring tuition
cost and the retroactive fall increase.
Tommy Womble, assistant director of
student accounts, said the November
deadline should give students plenty of
time to come up with the needed funds.
“We are extending the due date to
November 15th, which will give students
time to go to student aid and get help,”
Shirley Ort, director of scholarships
and student aid, said her department is
prepared to ease most of the burden for
students in need of financial assistance
because of the increase.
“We are asking all of our students,
whether in-state or out-of-state, to absorb
the first SIOO of the increase,” Ort said.
She said the remainder of the increase
’.‘.'ill be covered in a variety of ways. If in
state students want a loan increase, the
financial aid office will increase the loan,
provided that the student is eligible.
Out-of-state students who deserve
financial aid can expect the remaining
SB2O to be covered by the aid office.
Ort said undergraduate students
should be able to handle the tuition
increase, but she is concerned about
graduate students, who are facing
increases that range from $49 to $177.50
for in-state students and $602 to $1,386

As the nation prepares for the possi

Cosby Might Return for Graduation
By Brook Corwin
The senior class president and Student
Union officials said entertainer Bill Cosby
has given preliminary verbal consent to be
the spring 2002 Commencement speaker.
Ben Singer, president of UNC’s
senior class, said the choice of Cosby as
Commencement speaker still needs to
be approved by the offices of the chan
cellor and the provost. But Singer said
he was “very optimistic" that Cosby will
speak at graduation.
“Nothing has been confirmed, but
(Cosby) is definitely being pursued,"
Singer said. “I talked to him on Friday,
and he’s excited about the opportunity.”
Cosby delivered a speech on campus
last Friday as part of the Carolina Union
Virtuoso Benefit Series. Union Director
Don Luse said he put Singer in contact
with Cosby during the visit and that the
entertainer consented to Singer’s request
to be Commencement speaker- pro

Jennifer Smith, the marketing manager
for the Union, also said she heard Cosby
agree to speak at Commencement, but she
added that a lot of factors -most notably
scheduling problems - could prevent the
entertainer from appearing.
“I heard Cosby say to a few different
people that he would do it,” Smith said.
“But I can’t confirm anything because the
difference between him saying he will do
it and him actually doing it is big.”
Singer stressed that no guarantee can
be made on Cosby officially being
selected as Commencement speaker
until written consent is given by Cosby’s
agent. “It’s all based on someone’s word

“I think everyone can relate to Bill
Cosby,” Singer said. “We kind of grew
up with him on TV.

to hold a march matching the announce

The announcement stated that the
march would take place at 7 p.m. and
would start in front of Hinton James

fisted with the submission, telling stu

But Jim Carlton, the student referred to
in the announcement, has no affiliation
with any LGBT group on campus.
Carlton denies any knowledge of the
march and says he does not know who
placed the ad or why they used his name.
“I have no clue,” he said. “I’d like to

Carlton said he is not upset his name
