"NC Promise pushes UNCP enrollment [Editorial]." Robesonian [Lumberton, NC]. January 20, 2018.
NC Promise is a new program created by the General Assembly that offers discounted tuition to certain NC universities, including UNC Pembroke. The plan has raised interest in UNC-P by 50% compared to last year. Online traffic is up more than 3000%. The discount may increase the number of students coming in from out of state, a goal UNC-P has had for years.
