A residency problem
in tuition policy
A recently admitted student's
struggle to prove his in-state sta-
tus has forced the University to
resiew the residency policies it
uses to determine tuition rates for
children of army professionals.
See page 2.
OPINION
From the Daily:
Supremely unjust
Sometimes it's easy to forget
that discrimination isn't always
about hate crimes and segrega-
tion. It can be about something
as simple as getting a paycheck
that is less than it should be. But
apparently, the U.S. Supreme
Court and the University seem to
think that wage discrimination is
less serious. See page 4.
ARTS
'Knocked' out of the
park
Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up"
is delightfully crude, yet memo-
rably charming. See page 9.

Daily News Editors
The University has closed shop
on admissions for next year and
the final numbers provide insight
into the effect on minority enroll-
ment of the affirmative action ban
enacted by the passage of Pro-
posal 2.
The numbers show that the
January enactment of the leg-
islation drastically affected the
acceptance rate of under-repre-
sented minorities.
Although there were 175 more
minority applicants this year than
in 2006, the University admitted
1tt less than it did last year.
While the changes in both the
total number of applications, and
the applications from under-rep-
resented minorities increased by
about6.5 percent,thetotalnumber
of admitted applicants increased
15 percent while the number of
admitted minorities dropped by
7.4 percent.
This year the University accept-

'U' tries to make up
for delayed
appropriations
By JESSICA VOSGERCHIAN
ManagingNews Editor
A decision made by Michi-
gan's state legislature May 20 to
mitigate the state's $800 million
deficit by cutting funding to state
universities leaves the University
of Michigan to find ways to make
up for losses of more than $35
million from its yearly budget.
The deal in the legislature
delayed giving about $140 million
of the $1.6 billion earmarked in
2007 for public universities until
the next fiscal year. That means
the University will not see the
$29.6 million it is to receive this
August until Oct 1 - if the state is
able to provide it at all.

Another $5.6 million was
entirely eliminated from the Uni-
versity's state appropriations for
this year.
Despite the state's plan to
repay most of the money, the bud-
get cuts will force many state uni-
versities to consider themselves
in deficit for the 2007 fiscal year
ending June 30. That could lead to
the withholding of resources and
double-digit tuition hikes, said
Mike Boulus, executive director
of the Presidents Council of State
Universities of Michigan.
University administrators met
on Friday to discuss the impact
of the cuts on the University and
potential courses of action.
Phil Hanlon, associate pro-
vost for academic and budgetary
affairs, said the University will
withhold $35 million from the
general fund - which goes to
facets like course instruction and
research programs - to make up
for the hole left by the appropria-

tions postponement.
He said the University expects
the state will be able to finance
the endowment it delayed by
October.
"Yes, the University said that
and we expect that they will,"
Hanlon said. "The Provost's
Office is acting prudently by
holding back funds equal to that
amount."
Hanlon said the University
knew of the possibility of being
without its state endowment in
August and is not immediately
planning to raise tuition.
"It's too early to' talk about
tuition hikes for next year," he
said. "How the state decides to
set its fiscal year 2008 budget is
a significant factor in deciding
that."
The University would be in
trouble if the reductions were to
become a fixture in the state bud-
get, Hanlon said.
