— A tuition misunderstanding at North Carolina Central University confused some students Monday.

Students were sent a notice to pay a penny by Sept. 28 or face a $20 fine.

Joni Worthington, vice president for communications for the UNC system, said the tuition discrepancy was due to a clerical error.

Students do not have to pay the extra money.
