Montgomery College officials say a lawsuit calling for the college to stop giving undocumented students reduced tuition rates is an "unwarranted attack" containing false information.
The civil suit, brought against the college's Board of Trustees, seeks to terminate the college's long-standing policy that provides in-county tuition to any student who has graduated from a Montgomery public school within the previous three years, regardless of that student's immigration status.
All other students must prove their legal status to apply.
The Board of Trustees issued a statement on Monday saying, "We have not yet received official notification of the lawsuit... [which] contains various misrepresentations about college operations and misapplications of law."
The board says the college is in compliance with state and federal laws.
"We look forward to the upcoming opportunity for our community college — Montgomery College — to set the record straight," the board wrote.
