    Appropriates $2 million in additional recurring funds for the 2019-20 fiscal year from the General Fund to the reserve account in the Office of Budget and Management for enrollment adjustments for the UNC System. Designates the funds to support courses for resident full-time students who are enrolled in a four- or eight-semester certificate accomplishment program approved as a Comprehensive Transition Program (CTP) by the US Department of Education. Describes CTPs. Requires that the funds be used to eliminate the full-time equivalent disparity between CTPs and curriculum programs.
