TO REQUIRE THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AND THE STATE BOARD OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES TO PERIODICALLY REPORT TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT INFORMATION ABOUT LAWFULLY PRESENT STUDENTS WHOSE ATTENDANCE AT POSTSECONDARY EDUCATIONAL OR VOCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS LAPSES.
Amends GS 116-11 and GS 115D-5 as the title indicates. Requires that the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina and the State Board of Community Colleges immediately report attendance lapses, defined as a period of ten or more consecutive school days during which an alien student is absent, to the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Defines alien student as a student lawfully admitted into the U.S. to study at a postsecondary educational or postsecondary vocational institution. Enacts new GS 116-21.7 to apply the ICE reporting requirement regarding attendance lapses by alien students to private institutions of higher education, as defined in GS 116-22(1).
