Prop 308 In Effect; Undocumented Students Now Eligible For In-State Tuition At Arizona Universities
After a voter-approved ballot measure went into effect, undocumented students are now allowed access to pay in-state tuition at Arizona’s three public universities.
Arizona voters narrowly passed Proposition 308 in November. In addition to in-state tuition, the measure also allows undocumented students eligible for state financial aid beginning this spring semester.
Qualifying students must attend an Arizona high school or the home school equivalent for at least two years. The student must also graduate to qualify.
University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University have not seen a significant increase in enrollment from undocumented students, however the schools expect to see the increase in the Fall of 2023.
Statistics show that 46% of high school graduates continue their education in college in Arizona, compared with 60% nationally.
