NC Promise at UNCP

NC Promise Beginning Fall 2018, $500/semester in state tuition

Our promise. Your opportunity.

Beginning Fall 2018, you can have the benefit of a high-quality UNC Pembroke education at an incredible cost. The NC Promise Tuition Plan means you will pay tuition expenses of just $500 per semester for in-state students and $2,500 per semester for out-of-state students. NC Promise does not affect required fees and other costs of attendance. For more information on costs and fees, please review FAQs.

NC Promise  dramatically reduces the expense of your college education, saving students at least $10,000 over their 4 years at UNC Pembroke. It's like receiving a huge scholarship right out of the gate!

NC Promise does not mean we are reducing the quality of education you will receive here. If anything, it is an opportunity to improve quality, access and affordability.
