News & Observer Article: McCrory Signs Bill Giving Vets In-State College Tuition

Military veterans will have an easier time receiving in-state tuition rates at UNC schools and North Carolina community colleges starting this fall semester.

Gov. Pat McCrory was joined by about a dozen military members at the Executive Mansion on June 24 as he signed Senate Bill 478 into law. It goes into effect July 1.

The law waives the 12-month residency requirement to receive in-state tuition for certain non-resident veterans and those entitled to education benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty Education Program or the Post-9/11 Educational Assistance Program.

“We want to continue to be the most veteran-friendly state in the United States of America,” McCrory said. “Veterans are leaders. They are highly skilled, trained and have a history of getting jobs done. In fact, they are going to help fill the skills gap that we have in North Carolina.”
