June 03, 2014 Requesting Proof of Residency from Potential Enrollees
KEEPING YOU INFORMED…
On May 8, 2014, the United States Departments of Justice and Education issued a joint “Dear Colleague” letter along with a new Fact Sheet regarding the denial of enrollment to students because of their or their parents’ immigration status. The new joint guidance does not substantively change the law. Instead, it reiterates and clarifies the existing law. This memorandum discusses this issue.
THIS MEMORANDUM IS MEANT TO ASSIST IN GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CURRENT LAW. IT IS NOT TO BE REGARDED AS LEGAL ADVICE. THOSE WITH PARTICULAR QUESTIONS SHOULD SEEK THE ADVICE OF COUNSEL.
