GREENSBORO, N.C. — Two member institutions in the University of North Carolina system said higher tuition costs and changes to financial aid programs are behind increases in registration cancellations.

The News& Record of Greensboro reported the University of North Carolina at Greensboro canceled the registrations of about 1,300 students nearly two weeks ago because they had yet to pay their tuition bills.

UNCG Vice Provost Alan Boyette said some students ran into problems because they didn’t apply for financial aid on time, or their financial aid had not yet been packaged. Boyette expects the initial number to fall.

North Carolina A&T interim associate vice chancellor Akua Matherson said that as of Friday, the university was scheduled to cancel the registrations of 541 students, a 2.5 percent increase from last year.
