Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia has rolled out a program this coming fall that pledges to pay “100 percent of demonstrated financial need” of students that are in the U.S. illegally, the Gateway Pundit reports.
Emory spokeswoman Megan McRainey said that offering full financial aid relief to illegal immigrant students reflects the school’s commitment to open their doors to students from different backgrounds.
The private Atlanta university posted on their website the details of the program called “Need-Based Financial Aid Program for Undocumented Students, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) Students.”
University President Claire Sterk recently received a petition signed by over 200 faculty members demanding that Emory be declared a sanctuary campus.
Meanwhile, international students will not be given similar aid privileges as illegal aliens because they still have to pay $70,000 and need to provide certification that they have enough money to cover tuition.
American citizens will have to pay tuition that costs $70,000 per year if they wish to enroll in the prestigious Georgian university.
