UNC system braces for deep budget cuts, enrollment cap: Officials worry about ability to enroll new students (access required)

By Sam Boykin About 600 qualified students — who would otherwise be admitted — will be turned away from UNC Charlotte this fall. It’s just one of the many harsh ramifications stemming from state budget cuts that will impact the University of North Carolina system. “We’re very concerned,” said Beth Hardin, UNCC’s vice chancellor of business affairs. In addition, the North Carolina Legislature is expected to approve an enrollment cap for next fall, which will further impede UNCC’s ability to enroll new students. “This would be the first time in history North Carolina has denied qualified students access to higher education,” said Hardin. “It negatively impacts Charlotte and North Carolina’s economic preparedness.”
