The North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges on Friday affirmed the right of students who do not have legal documentation to reside in the United States to enroll at community colleges (at out-of-state tuition rates), The Raleigh News & Observer reported. The latest move -- which has been coming for some time -- follows more than a year of debate amid suggestions from some state officials that these students could not enroll legally. While federal officials confirmed that there was no legal ban on the students, the issue has become highly politicized and the state board noted that the General Assembly could overrule the policy.
