Durham, N.C. — A $1.03 million tuition increase for North Carolina Central University was approved Thursday by the school’s Board of Trustees.
"Permanent budget cuts and reductions at this level are difficult for the university to absorb without seriously impacting direct instruction," Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance Wendell Davis said in a statement.
Money from the increase will go towards need-based financial aid and student retention through hiring additional faculty, advisers and tutors, the school said.
