CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- The University of North Carolina is considering admitting more out-of-state students in an effort to boost revenue. 

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported (http://bit.ly/VluPhy) the UNC system is considering raising its 18 percent limit on the number of out-of-state freshmen admitted to its campuses. 

The school has limited out-of-state enrollment for decades in order to provide room for North Carolina residents. 

North Carolina residents pay tuition and fees of $7,500 while students from out of state pay more than $28,000. 

UNC President Tom Ross says one idea would be to keep the 18 percent out-of-state limit for the entire system, but allow some campuses to exceed that figure.  

UNC-Chapel Hill, East Carolina University and North Carolina A&T are in big demand from those who live outside North Carolina
