NEW beginning in 2016-2017, NCCCG has defined an additional enrollment status in order to comply with new legislation passed by the NC General Assembly requiring state grant program payment schedules to encourage students to take a minimum of 30 hours per year (15 hours per semester).  The full-time plus payment for 2016-2017 is a set amount of $400 over the full-time amount for the year ($200 for Fall, $200 for Spring).
