THIS TABLE LISTS SOME OF THE STATE BILLS that address access to higher education for immigrant students. It includes bills that would improve access by providing in-state tuition rates to a state’s high school graduates, regardless of their status, or by increasing access to financial aid or scholarships. It also lists bills that seek to restrict access to education by banning enrollment, in-state tuition, or by creating other barriers to postsecondary education for immigrant students.
The table is available only as a PDF.
Because the 2013 state legislative sessions are in progress, the information in this table is subject to change and may be incomplete. Please contact Tanya Broder (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have additions or revisions to offer.
This table's two subparts are:
- Improving Access to Higher Education: Tuition Equity, Scholarships, and Financial Aid
Tuition equity bills generally allow students who attend high school in a state, and who graduate and meet other criteria, to pay in-state tuition rates, regardless of their immigration status. Also listed here are measures providing access to state financial aid, scholarships, and other efforts to improve or restore access to education for students who attend a state’s high schools.
- Bills Restricting Access to Post-Secondary Education
Includes proposals to ban enrollment in higher education, repeal in-state tuition laws, and restrict financial aid, in-state tuition, grants or scholarships.
