Deletes the changes to GS 116-25.1, which provided that an incarcerated individual who is not eligible for federal education assistance on the basis of the incarceration is not disqualified from receiving financial assistance under The University of North Carolina Need-Based Financial Aid Program if the individual otherwise meets the requirements of the program.
