Undocumented Students Can Get In-State Tuitions

July 10, 2011
Plain English Version

The United States Supreme Court ruled that states may allow undocumented students to pay the lower tuition paid by citizens and permanent residents in state schools.

In many states undocumented students can go to state schools but pay full tuition. Thirteen states permit undocumented students to get lower resident tuition rates.

Undocumented students do not qualify as residents. They can achieve admission when they get community college degrees or pass other educational tests.

The U.S. Supreme Court has shown it will uphold these laws despite the general understanding that immigration is a federal matter.

New York and California are among the states that allow lower tuition.
