Tuition Rates for Special Talent and Graduate Nonresident Students

 

                WHEREAS, Chapter Seven, Section 701 of The Code of The University of North Carolina provides that “The Board of Governors shall set tuition and required fees at the constituent institutions, not inconsistent with actions of the General Assembly, in such amount or amounts as it may deem best;” and

 

                WHEREAS, N.C.G.S. § 116-143 was amended by the 1981 General Assembly to authorize the Board of Governors to establish especially reduced tuition rates and to give tuition and fee waivers; and

 

                WHEREAS, the 1981 General Assembly also revised N.C.G.S. § 116-143 by eliminating the special rate considerations established by the 1971 General Assembly for certain groups of nonresident students; and

 

                WHEREAS, the 1981 General Assembly continued the requirement in N.C.G.S. § 116-143 that all budgeted funds expended for scholarships of any type, including the granting of tuition and fee waivers and especially reduced rates, must be clearly identified in budget reports; and

 

                WHEREAS, the 1983 General Assembly revised N.C.G.S. § 116-144 to direct the Board of Governors to fix the tuition and required fees charged nonresident students comparable to the rates charged nonresident students by comparable public institutions nationwide, except that a person who serves as a graduate teaching assistant or graduate research assistant or in a similar instructional or research assignment and is at the same time enrolled as a graduate student in the same institution may, in the discretion of the Board of Governors, be charged a lower rate fixed by the board, provided the rate is not lower than the North Carolina resident rate; and,

 

                WHEREAS, the 1983 General Assembly specifically provided that the Board of Governors increase tuition so as to raise additional income of at least $10,000,000 for each year in the biennium, thus requiring changes in all tuition rates currently in effect.

 

                NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Governors that, effective with the fall term of 1983, the following groups of nonresident students are identified as eligible for special tuition rates:

 

Group 1:               Undergraduate students deemed by the institution to have special talents and qualifications and who are thereby awarded by the institution a scholarship or fellowship at a rate of at least $250 per academic year. The North Carolina School of the Arts may identify categories within this group in accordance with established institutional practice.

 

Group 2:               Graduate students who are awarded by the institution a graduate teaching or research assistantship and who are paid a stipend at a rate of at least $2,000 per academic year.

 

                AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED by the Board of Governors that:

 

                1.             Effective with the fall term of 1983, the special tuition rates for the specific groups of nonresident students identified above are established, except as provided in Section 2 below, as follows:

                2.            It is understood that, notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this resolution, each institution shall limit the granting of these special tuition rates as set forth by the Board of Governors to conform with established budgetary limitations. The total tuition remission (defined as the sum of the difference between the regular nonresident rate and the special rate charged under the provisions of this resolution) shall not exceed the amount budgeted for each group at each constituent institution. Separate budgets will be established to record tuition remission for specially talented undergraduate students (Group 1) and for graduate assistants (Group 2).

 

                3.            The President shall provide appropriate administrative procedures and regulations for the constituent institutions in accordance with the terms of this resolution.
