North Carolina has been charged with five violations by the NCAA for the school's long-running academic fraud scandal connection. Per ESPN:

The charges include providing improper benefits in the form of counselors making "special arrangements'' with staffers in the formerly-named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department to offer courses or obtain assignments for athletes, as well as a counselor working with the women's basketball program providing improper help on research papers.

All five charges are considered Level I violations, described by the NCAA as a "serious breach of conduct.''
With the arrival of the NCAA notice, a hearing for the school with the infractions committee will now take place and any potential sanctions would follow.
