NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - Trident Technical College has decided to allow students covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act to enroll in the school.

The school said Tuesday it has received clarification from the state that will allow it to accept DACA recipients. The announcement comes after several people protested when the school would not grant admission to several people covered under the act.

"It's a time to be awoken by every state. we're known to be one of the worst states next to next to Alabama, Georgia and I think it's going to open a lot of eyes, a lot of hearts. And again education is for all our children, all the adults who want to get educated," said Diana Salazar with the Latino Association of Charleston.
