Update: State Policies Regarding In-state Tuition for Undocumented Students

In Jobs for the Future's January 2005 brief, Access to Community College for Undocumented Students: A Guide for State Policymakers, we reported on trends and developments in Achieving the Dream states around tuition and financial aid for undocumented students. We had noted in that brief that since 2001, about twenty states had introduced bills around providing in-state tuition to undocumented immigrant students, and seven states had passed legislation awarding in-state tuition to these students. In 2006, the number of states that had introduced legislation rose to thirty, and the number of states that had passed legislation to provide in-state tuition rose to ten. In this update, we report trends and further developments in this policy area.
