Nobody said this upcoming year is going to be easy. But it doesn’t have to be this hard.

As you know, we are the midst of a global pandemic, social unrest, and a huge economic depression. And UNC University students  received word from our university that tuition for the 2020-2021 school year is due soon and it’s not going to be lowered, even though most students have half of our courses online.

UNC Universities have asked in their emails for the students to be patient while they work on a solution, rearranging classes and trying to make the best of it. For us. What would be better for us is some relief. An expectation for students and their families to pay the full 20K+ tuition currently is laughable at best.

Students have lost their jobs, parents have lost their jobs, hundreds of thousands of people are on unemployment—which is set to run out at the end of July. Students loan payments are also going to resume this quarter, only increasing the financial burden. Eviction bans are going to be lifted, causing low income students to potentially lose their homes.

Were all struggling to get through and survive through these trying and uncertain times. College students should have to chooses between and education and living/ surviving with the little funds they were given. Please allow college students to get their education at  a MUCH more reasonable price.
