UNC Pembroke sees record enrollment

A quote from the article:

New at the university this year is the “N.C. Promise Tuition Plan” which significantly reduced tuition at UNC-P and two other universities.

The plan decreased in-state tuition costs to $500 per semester and out-of-state tuition to $2,500 per semester.

I have to wonder how the new tuition plan at UNC Pembroke, ECSU, and Western Carolina affected ECU. Those schools are now significantly cheaper (at least $4k a year) than ECU and some students may be going there because of the price.

Were there student enrollment drops at App, UNCW, Charlotte, UNCG? If so, that tells a bigger picture, especially in a growing State. Not much info in that article except that enrollment at ECU dropped by 4%. No info on incoming SAT scores, GPA, ect...
Agreed--ECU and Greenville will always be tied to each other. If the students at ECU improve, the academics improve, and both ECU and Greenville improve in the eyes of the state and region. I'll take the 4% drop if it leads to better quality and, long term, competitiveness of ECU in the eyes of prospective students to come.

Did the article mention total ECU Fall enrollment numbers? I didn't see it. Last Fall was 29,131 I believe.

I work for a university and the talk of the town is to expect slightly smaller freshmen enrollments for the foreseeable future. It's caused by fewer students in high school, but also people pursuing cheaper options like community college.
