NC Community College Board Focuses On Immigrant Policy

The issue of whether illegal immigrants should be allowed to go to community colleges comes up again Thursday.

The N.C. Community College Board is meeting Thursday and Friday. The policy committee will consider amending the rule to allow undocumented immigrants, provided they have graduated from a high school in the U.S. and pay out of state tuition. The proposed amendments also say students "lawfully in the U.S. will have priority over undocumented immigrants" when space is limited.
