DURHAM, N.H. - The University of New Hampshire continued its action against five more of the 52 UNH students arrested during the April 12 melee, bringing the total to 21. The cases of the remaining 31 UNH students charged with crimes will be reviewed when Durham and UNH police complete the remaining police reports.

Two more students were notified last night that they are immediately suspended from the university on an interim basis, pending the outcome of student conduct proceedings, bringing the total number interim suspended to four. Because of federal privacy laws, student names cannot be released by the university. During the period of interim suspension, students are denied access to the campus, including taking classes and living in the residence halls, and all activities and privileges otherwise available as the vice president for student affairs deems appropriate.

Three others will be notified that they have student conduct charges brought against them immediately.

Those students who are UNH scholarship recipients will be notified in writing that their scholarships --ranging in value from $2,500 to $7,000 for the coming year -- are on hold pending resolution of these cases.
