Rules for illegal immigrants in local community colleges may change

Our community colleges are already back in session, but they may change the rules for illegal immigrants once again. Currently illegal immigrants are banned from North Carolina's community colleges, but system leaders are looking at reversing that policy, which has changed four times since 2000. The state board held a special committee session on the matter Wednesday. The two biggest concerns: would the undocumented students fill spots sought by legal residents, and what should they pay? A new decision could come as early as Friday.
