The State Board of Community Colleges approved a new admissions policy that would allow illegal immigrants to attend North Carolina community colleges. The board voted 16 to 1 in favor of the new policy.
To be admitted illegal immigrants must meet the following requirements:

- Must pay out-of-state tuition, totaling $4,400 per academic year.
- May not displace a North Carolina or U.S. resident from a class or program
