Intellectually Gifted and Mature Program

Effective January 2012, community colleges will no longer be permitted to enroll students under the age of 16 as part of the Intellectually or Academically Gifted (AIG) program. On July 1, 2011, in Section 7.1A.(f) of Senate Law 2011-145 and House Bill 200, the North Carolina General Assembly repealed G.S. 115D-1.1 and G.S. 115D-1.2 which previously allowed students under the age of 16 who met specific academic criteria to enroll in community college courses. In effect, community colleges are no longer able to offer enrollment options for students who are under the age of 16 unless they have earned a high school diploma or unless they are participating in one of the three Career and College Promise pathways.
