SECTION 701.                    TUITION AND FEES.

The Board of Governors shall set tuition and required fees at the constituent institutions, not inconsistent with actions of the General Assembly, in such amount or amounts as it may deem best, taking into consideration the nature of each institution and program of study and the cost of equipment and maintenance; and each institution shall charge and collect from each student, at the beginning of each semester or quarter, tuition, fees, and an amount sufficient to pay other expenses for the term. [See G.S. 116-11(7) and 116-143] Consistent with the North Carolina constitutional mandate, the benefits of the University of North Carolina shall be extended to the people of the state free of expense, as far as practicable. [See N. C. Constitution, Art. IX, Sec. 9]
