As a result of the General Assembly of North Carolina's Appropriations Act of 2011, North Carolina's participation in the ACM, as both a sender and a receiver of students, will be phased out beginning with academic year 2012-13. Students certified for the ACM who are enrolled and begin study prior to the second summer session in 2012 may continue to pay in-state tuition as long as they remain enrolled in their specified degree program. (The second summer session is considered to be a part of the following academic year, even if it should begin prior to July 1.)
The University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) campus will no longer participate in the ACM for any major at any level after spring 2013. Students currently approved for ACM will be grandfathered provided they fulfill requirements.
