The executive branch and the Campus Y held a forum to address concerns about the Board of Governor’s “Freeze and Cap” policy, which caps the amount of tuition revenue allocated to .
Chancellor Carol Folt and Stephen Farmer, vice provost for enrollment and undergraduate admissions, assured students the university is “100 percent committed to meeting 100 percent of demonstrated need.”
“We are proud of Carolina’s incredible commitment to keeping excellence high, tuition low,” Folt said. “We will continue to provide need-blind and full-need aid. I don’t think you could come up with another university that does that.”
During the Q&A session, students expressed concern over the time frame of this cap and UNC’s future affordability.
Student Body President Andrew Powell said he is confident Folt’s administration will find a way to keep tuition down and financial aid high.
“Carolina remains committed to meeting 100 percent of need-based aid commitments despite any policy changes or financial restraints,” Powell said.
UNC’s tuition and financial aid model has changed over the past few years.
