Undocumented Students are Allowed to Attend College

It appears it is now official:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not require any school to determine a student’s status (ie., whether or not he or she is legally allowed to study). DHS also does not require any school to request immigration status information prior to enrolling students or to report to the government if they know a student is out of status, except in the case of those who came on student visas or for exchange purposes and are registered with the Student Exchange and Visitor Program.

Full statement by ICE can be read here.
