Bill summary

House committee substitute deletes the provisions of the 1st edition and now provides the following.

Part I.

Commends the UNC Board of Governors (BOG) for adopting a policy and regulations that standardize Advanced Placement (AP) credit policies across all of the UNC constituent institutions. Formally endorses the BOG's actions directing all constituent institutions to award appropriate credit to all undergraduates who have earned a score of three or higher on one or more AP exams and only allowing exceptions upon a petition to the Board of Trustees presenting a compelling justification. Further describes the policy's implications. 

Part II.

Appropriates from the General Fund the following amounts to the BOG for the specified fiscal year to provide funds for staff, operating expenses, and equipment for the Morganton campus of the NC School of Science and Math: $1,408,632 in recurring funds and $5,150 in nonrecurring funds for the 2019-20 fiscal year; and $3,389,820 in recurring funds and $792,369 in nonrecurring funds for the 2020-21 fiscal year.

Deems the provisions of the Part to supersede GS 143C-5-4 in the event they conflict. Provides that the provisions are effective until the Current Operations Appropriations Act for the applicable year becomes law, at which point the Director of the Budget will adjust allotments to give effect to that act from July 1 of the fiscal year. 

Effective July 1, 2019.

Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.
