North Carolina Tuition Equity
TELL THE NC LEGISLATURE: pass a bill to guarantee tuition equity for students regardless of their citizenship and immigration status. One State, One Rate: College Tuition Should Be The Same For All NC Students. When All NC Students Are Allowed to Learn, WE ALL WIN
Why is this important?
Thousands of undocumented students in North Carolina are prevented from continuing their education after high school each year. They are forced to pay out of state tuition, which is 4x higher than their in state peers to attend UNC System schools. These hardworking students who have grown up in North Carolina want to pursue their dreams and contribute to the NC economy, but they can’t access an affordable college education. Tuition equity would give in state tuition to undocumented North Carolinians.
Who is impacted?
Students who are undocumented and recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
