In-state Tuition for Undocumented Immigrants MS Word PDF - As immigration to the United States increases, more and more students are entering the education pipeline. Many of these newly arrived students are undocumented, or “illegal” immigrants, and denied the full rights of American citizenship, including educational benefits such as in-state tuition at public colleges and universities. Some states have passed legislation that extends in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants, others have proposed laws that restrict the awarding of in-state tuition to these same immigrants. This ECS StateNote provides a summary of states that have passed or have considered legislation regarding tuition for undocumented immigrants.
