NC community colleges to receive admissions report
ASHEBORO — North Carolina’s community college system is trying to figure out whether to change its policy barring the admission of illegal immigrants.
A state community college board committee meeting in Asheboro planned to receive Thursday a report from an outside consultant examining the issue. The Maryland-based JBL Associates also was expected to make policy recommendations.
A system spokeswoman said the full board will receive the report Friday but isn’t expected to discuss its contents until later.
The community college system decided in November 2007 that its 58 campuses must admit illegal immigrants. But the system reversed the decision six months later after a letter from the state Attorney General’s Office.
Federal officials said later it was up to each state to decide who can be enrolled.
