ACCELERATED LEARNING OPTIONS

In North Carolina, legislation states that students under the age of 16 may enroll in a community college if the student is found to be gifted and mature, according to criteria established by the State Board of Community Colleges. The North Carolina State Board of Education directed that a policy manual be created as of 2004 that would describe the operating procedures for dual enrollment. University of North Carolina policy states that campuses may establish Early College High Schools that provide regular high school coursework as well as college-level coursework; students in college courses will not be considered degree-seeking students by the college, but upon graduation from the high school may apply for regular admission. Policy specifies implementation regulations agreed to by the North Carolina Board of Education and the University that cover student eligibility, application, and selection; the classification and tracking of Early College students; student performance criteria for college course-taking; and the appointment and compensation of the principal and other staff, among other things. Early Colleges are considered public high schools but all facilities remain under University control. In addition, the Board of Education and the University are to agree on start-up and annual operational costs to be reimbursed to the University by the Board. State law also allows for the creation of cooperative innovative programs in high schools and community colleges that target students at-risk of dropping out or who would benefit from accelerated instruction. Such programs may be a school within a school, a technical high school, or a high school or technical center located on a college campus. Accelerated learning programs must provide a flexible, customized program of instruction; enable students to obtain a high school diploma in less than four years or begin or complete an associate's degree or master a certificate or vocational program; and offer a college preparatory academic core and in-depth studies in a career or technical field. The legislation outlines other guidelines for the programs, including the identification of students, funding and accountability, and teaching methods. Regarding Tech Prep, state policy specifies that the State Board of Education and State Board of Community Colleges are jointly responsible for carrying out a successful Tech Prep Associate Degree program in North Carolina, which will be available in all public school districts and community college service areas in the state. The two state boards jointly agree to establish an inter-agency Tech Prep Associate Degree Committee to guide the continuing development and implementation of the program, and agree to a framework for the Tech Prep Associate Degree course of study that includes specified courses, competences, student achievement standards, and employer input, among other things. Legislation requires that the State School Technology Plan shall address equipment needs for vocational education and Tech Prep through the State School Technology Fund. (Last updated 2008)

ADULT LEARNERS

The State Board of Education in North Carolina is required to establish as part of the public school system an adult education program according to state statute (N.C. Gen. Stat. 115C-231). Local school boards can implement and support these adult education programs using local funds. State statute requests that tuition be free of charge to every person over the age of 18 who has not completed a standard high school course of study. The Community Colleges System Office is designated as the primary lead agency for delivering workforce development training, adult literacy training, and adult education programs in North Carolina. In 2011, the Commission on Workforce Development initiated the "No Adult Left Behind" Initiative, with the goal of increasing the percentage of North Carolinians earning associates degrees, other two-year education credentials, and baccalaureate degrees. The Division of Adult Correction of the Department of Public Safety is allowed to use funds to develop academic, vocational, and technical education programs for inmates of the state prison system.

ARTICULATION, TRANSFER, AND ALIGNMENT

Legislation passed in 1995, N.C. Gen. Stat. 115D-4.1, created a statewide articulation plan with the goal of expanding access to higher education for all students through uniform policies for the transfer of credit from community colleges to University of North Carolina System (UNCS) institutions. The State Board of Community Colleges - which governs the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) - was directed to implement a common course numbering system with common course descriptions for all community college programs. The legislation also established a common education transfer core curriculum that applies to all associate degree programs in the state's public institutions. Community college transfer students who have completed the core curriculum must still compete for admission to a four-year college and for acceptance into a major, but they are not required to complete work beyond that required of all continuing students. Legislation passed in 2003 encourages community colleges in the state to promote early entry of high-achieving students into four-year college programs and to ensure there are opportunities at public institutions for academically talented high school students to get an early start on college coursework. The same legislation further encourages the establishment of innovative high school programs to be developed cooperatively by secondary schools and community colleges to reduce the high school dropout rate, increase secondary and college degree completion rates, and reduce the need for remediation. In order to comply with state law, the UNCS and the NCCCS created the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA). The agreement, which was last modified in 2008, applies to all NCCCS transfer students who complete the 44 semester hour general education core courses, or who obtain their associate in arts or associate in science degree prior to transferring to a UNCS institution.

DATA AND ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS

North Carolina has instituted a comprehensive student unit record system that tracks students across postsecondary sectors. NC Statute 115D-31.3 creates accountability measures and performance standards for the state's community college system. Colleges are required to report annually on 12 performance standards identified in statute. Colleges are able to retain and carry forward up to 2 percent of final fiscal year general fund appropriations for successful performance on performance measures. The University of North Carolina has established 20 performance standards, which includes measures that require institutions to increase transfer rates of students who earn an associate's degree, and improvement in retention and graduation rates. The UNC system office tracks the performance of high school graduates in the 16 constituent universities and provides an annual report to each high school in the state regarding the performance of their graduates who attend public universities in NC. The Department of Public Instruction supports an extensive system of accountability through a set of end of grade and end of course tests that are the basis for assessing the progress of primary and secondary schools in North Carolina. North Carolina has a Data Project to build a data warehouse to further facilitate the exchange of data among the Department of Public Instruction, the North Carolina Community College System, and the University of North Carolina and to do longitudinal studies of student progress from school through postsecondary education.

EARLY OUTREACH PROGRAMS

North Carolina has an extensive network of activities aimed specifically at increasing the college-going rate in the state with focused attention on the low-income, first generation college student. The General Assembly established in 1999 a collaborative initiative between the UNC system, the NC Community College System, and the NC Independent Colleges and Universities. The program operates both a website (www.CFNC.org) and a toll-free telephone service (866-866-CFNC) as a one-stop source for all students and parents need for planning, applying, and paying for college. In addition, 10 of the UNC campuses operate math and science pre-college programs for 7-12th graders who are underrepresented in the math and science professions. In addition to the numerous TRIO programs across the state, NC has a state GEAR UP grant and five GEAR UP partnership programs, serving 27 of the 100 counties in North Carolina. House Bill 1246 (2001) directed the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina, in cooperation with the State Board of Education and the State Board of Community Colleges, to study the measures used for admissions, placement, and advanced placement decisions by the constituent institutions of the state's university system.

FINANCE

The Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina fixes the tuition and fees at the institutions within its jurisdiction while being consistent with policies set forth by the General Assembly. The Board's general policy states, "The appropriate tuition policy at the undergraduate level encourages students to pursue academic and intellectual interests without regard to program costs. Accordingly, no difference in tuition between undergraduate programs will occur within an institution, and there will be only minimal differences in undergraduate tuition among campuses in similar institutional categories as defined by the Board to reflect both varying missions and contrasting costs of education." The Board of Governors is required to set tuition rates for nonresident students at levels "higher than the rates charged residents of North Carolina and comparable to the rates charged nonresident students by comparable public institutions nationwide." To qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, a person must have established legal residence in North Carolina and maintained that legal residence for at least 12 months immediately prior to matriculation. The State Board of Community Colleges establishes and regulates student tuition and fees that are consistent with policies for tuition and fees established by the General Assembly. Members of the armed forces and certain eligible teachers are charged in-state tuition only. In addition, North Carolina grants certain full or partial tuition waivers to individuals who are 65 years of age or older, spouses and dependents of law enforcement officers, firefighters, volunteer firefighters, or rescue squad workers who are permanently and totally disabled as a direct result of a traumatic injury sustained in the line of duty, and members of the North Carolina National Guard.

REMEDIAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATION

The majority of remedial education takes place at the 58 two-year institutions in the North Carolina Community College System. A University of North Carolina system policy encourages its institutions to contract with community colleges to offer remedial instruction their students. Under the policy, community colleges receive additional funding from the state. The community college system uses a common set of three assessments and uniform cut scores for math and English course placement. North Carolina statute created an institutional accountability system for community colleges that centers on the evaluation and reporting of eight performance standards. The standards include passing rates in remedial courses and success rates of remedial students in subsequent college-level courses. Through its partnership with the Developmental Education Initiative (DEI), the community college system has embarked on a redesign of remedial education. The initiative includes the implementation of instructional modules, with plans to adopt diagnostic assessments to support accurate student placements and accelerate their completion of remediation.

RESIDENCY

Residency policies are set by the legislature and regulated by the University of North Carolina Board of Governors. To qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, a student must have established domicile in North Carolina for at least one continuous year. If a dependent, the student's domicile is that of the parent(s). The student must establish that he or she is domiciled in state for reasons other than to attain tuition benefits. Resident tuition benefits are extended to nonresident members of the North Carolina National Guard. Full-time employees of the University of North Carolina, their spouses and dependents qualify as residents for tuition purposes, without having to fulfill the one year residency requirement. Moreover, the Board of Governors has the authority to set special nonresident tuition rates for specific students, including graduate assistants and undergraduate students who are deemed to have "special talents and qualifications." Finally, constituent institutions may consider undergraduate nonresident students who receive a full scholarship from entities recognized by the institution as residents for tuition purposes.

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID

The State Education Assistance Authority administers various need-and non-need-based-based aid programs provided by federal, state, and privately funded sources. The state's need based grants include the UNC Need Based Grant (for student enrolling in one of the 16 campuses of the University of North Carolina); the NC Community College Grant & Loan Program (for student enrolling at North Carolina Community colleges); the State Contractual Scholarship Fund Program (for students enrolling in an independent non-profit institution in the state); and the North Carolina Student Incentive Grant (for students regardless of type of institution). In addition, North Carolina offers merit-based grants, additional need-based grants, and has a college savings program and several loan programs. For 2005-2006 academic year, North Carolina awarded 142,993 million for need-based aid, 53,831 million for non-need-based aid. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

TEACHING QUALITY

North Carolina continues to be ranked atop Education Week's Quality Counts state rankings on teaching quality. The state has invested in programs that recruit new candidates - Teaching Fellows, Project Teach, NC TEACH, etc. In addition, the state has continued to develop and enhance induction and professional development support to help retain practicing teachers. North Carolina also has taken steps to determine the working conditions of teachers in an effort to understand why teachers decide to stay and leave. Since 2002, the Governor has spear-headed an effort to survey all teachers in the state and has used the results to inform both state and local policy. (Last updated 2008)
