Joint Letter by Community College Presidents on opposition to changes re: "public charge"

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

The College has joined with other Massachusetts community colleges in writing to the Department of Homeland Security in opposition to the changes regarding "public charge,” published in the Federal register on October 10, 2018.  The definition of a "public charge" is someone who is dependent on government benefits and as a result, may be denied access to these critical resources.  An expanded “public charge” definition would include those who participate in additional safety net programs, including Medicaid and SNAP.

If you have questions, or would like more information, please feel free to contact the Dean of Students’ Office: 617-228-2408.
