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 is a set amount of $800 over the full-time amount ($400 for Fall and $400 for Spring)
