Student Congress passed a resolution Tuesday opposing any tuition increase exceeding the 6.5 percent cap mandated by the UNC-system Board of Governors.
The original resolution — proposed by representative Stephen Milder — stated that Student Congress was against a tuition increase of any amount for the 2012-2013 school year.
But after discussion, Representative Anya McDermott proposed amending the resolution.
“It’s unrealistic to say that we’re completely opposed to any tuition increases,” McDermott said of the original proposal. “Tuition increases are going to happen.”
UNC administrators last month expressed support for a proposal to raise tuition by 40 percent during the next two to four years.
