Tuition Equality: Good For Our Students, Good For Our State
Today marks the launch of a new campaign seeking tuition equality for all North Carolina students. Let’s Learn NC is all about fairness, opportunity and equal access to education. This statewide grassroots campaign advocates for the same college tuition for all North Carolina students, because higher education should be equally accessible to all state residents. Currently, undocumented students are charged out of state tuition – which is four times higher than in state tuition – even if they meet the same residency requirements as other NC students (including a physical presence in NC for 12 continuous months).
Join Let’s Learn NC to become a part of this active movement for fairness for NC students and call for “One State / One Rate.”
