Business Sponsored Student Procedures
Pursant to N.C.G.S § 115D-39(a), North Carolina law provides a special benefit to employers choosing to pay the full cost of an eligible student/employee’s community college tuition. The employer is granted the in-state tuition rate, even when the student/employee does not meet the general requirements for in-state tuition. The law requires the student/employee to work at the employers’s North Carolina business location. The burden of proof is on the student/employee to establish that the business is a legitimate North Carolina business approved by the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State.
Beginning with the 2016 fall semester, Forsyth Tech will require the following in order to be processed as a Business sponsored student:
- Request for the in-state rate must be on company letterhead
- A copy of the employee’s pay stub
- The completed company sponsorship form. Click the link below or stop by the Cashier’s Office, Admissions, or the Records Office to obtain a copy.
