The University of North Carolina (UNC) has received an ammended notice of allegations (NOA) from the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The old notice pertained to major violations in the university's academic assistance in their sports teams. However, in the new NOA, the NCAA left out the women's basketball team and renewed their academic case approach.

In the long-running fraud scandal, the amended NOA left out the UNC's men's basketball and football teams. It retained the charge against women's basketball team where an adviser is accused of improperly assisting research papers for class. The report states that more than half of those who took the fraudulent classes were football players, 12 percent were men's basketball players and six percent were women's baketball players. It is not known why the amended NOA focuses on women's basketball team.

New York Times reports that the old NOA accused some university staff of assisting academically-poor athletes from postseason bans and the like for doing poorly in their academic subjects. However, this has been removed from the amended NOA.

ABC News reports that the university still has five charges against them. Among these allegations include failing to monitor academic support program for their student athletes, lacking institutional control, and not following up the African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department.

UNC Athletic Director Bubba Cunningham said that this is one of the most difficult NCAA cases for Carolina. ABC11.com reports that the scandal has been jointly investigated by the university and the NCAA but the latter has the final say on what the NOA will contain. UNC has 90 days to respond to the new NOA which is in August of this year. Furthermore, the university has numerous pending legal troubles including three lawsuits by ex-UNC athletes.
