Posted September 8, 2005 4:33 a.m. EDT
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Colleges and universities across the nation immediately opened their doors to college students displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Now, the
University of North Carolina
system is taking its offer to a new level.
The UNC Board of Governors adopted a
Thursday that would waive tuition and mandatory fees for the 2005 fall semester.
To qualify, students must have been enrolled in a college or university that closed because of the hurricane and have been admitted to a UNC campus.
Campus administrators are assisting students in obtaining any state or federal financial aid for which they may be eligible.
