AN ACT TO INCREASE RIGOR, FOCUS, AND CAREER READINESS TO THE MATHEMATICS STANDARD COURSE OF STUDY BY REQUIRING THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO MODIFY AND REVISE THE MATHEMATICS STANDARD COURSE OF STUDY IN ORDER TO OFFER THE TRADITIONAL SEQUENCE OF MATHEMATICS COURSES AND TO DISALLOW THE USE OF A CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION COURSE AS A SUBSTITUTE TO SATISFY A GRADUATION REQUIREMENT FOR A FOURTH CREDIT IN MATHEMATICS.
Enacts new GS 116-11.3 to create a fixed-tuition program to be offered to freshman undergraduate students in the constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina. The cost of the program may vary by institution. In the program, the tuition will stay the same for 12 consecutive semesters (including summers) as long as the student remains enrolled consecutively and remains in good standing. Allows the tuition period to be tolled in certain circumstances. Requires that fees charged to a student in the fixed tuition program be the same as those charged to other students.
Effective when the act becomes law and applies to academic years beginning after July 1, 2016.
