Governor McCrory visits UNCP to speak about NC Promise Legislation

Governor Pat McCrory was on campus briefly at the start of the semester to tout the NC Promise legislation that he signed over the summer. The law will make tuition at Pembroke and 2 other state schools only $500 per semester for in-state students. The law will also freeze tuition at all UNC system campuses, so that students will pay the same price for 4 years. McCrory’s visit was part of a statewide tour of campuses to discuss college affordability. The law goes into effect in fall of 2018. McCrory noted that the state will have to make up the difference in lost revenue for UNCP to continue operating.
