N.C. community college rate break for vets proposed

RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory says he wants to make it easier for new veterans to attend any of North Carolina’s community colleges.

McCrory announced Thursday he’ll seek in his upcoming budget proposal a provision to give the in-state tuition rate to veterans for any of the 58 community colleges. It’s considered a way to encourage them to settle in North Carolina after separation from the military and contribute their skills to the economy.

The governor says more than 60,000 members of the military are expected to leave the service in North Carolina during the next five years as the war in Afghanistan ends.

McCrory made the announcement at the inaugural Women Veterans Summit and Expo in Raleigh.

Student Veterans of America, in partnership with two other prominent veterans groups service organizations, has created an interactive online map that shows which states have colleges and universities that provide blanket in-state tuition to vets and which do not.
