CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The NCAA has completed its independent investigation into allegations of academic fraud at the University of North Carolina.

The report shows that for 18 years thousands of students took fake classes that did not require attendance.  It also claims that athletes were given passing grades to remain eligible for sports, event if they never showed up for class.

Four employees have been fired so far and five others disciplined.  The University plans to respond to the investigation within 90 days.   Pending the outcome of the NCAA investigation, UNC’s top tier athletic programs could face severe punishment.
