RANDOLPH - The County College of Morris is doing away with a policy that banned undocumented residents from attending classes.
The college stopped allowing undocumented students to attend after the September 11th terrorist attacks. It was the only county college in New Jersey to do so. This summer the college is lifting the ban, with restrictions.
Under the new rules, only students who have been in the country since before they were 16 and are not over the age of 35 can apply. Students must also have graduated from a local high school and have been in this country continuously for at least 5 years.
College President Edward Yaw expects 30 to 40 additional students a year will enroll as a result of the policy change. County College of Morris will accept applications from undocumented students beginning in July.
