In-state tuition for DACA students in limbo
Sept. 7, 2017
Though the Trump administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program does not go into effect until February, DACA recipients in Arizona face a more immediate challenge: potentially losing in-state tuition.
The Arizona Court of Appeals Court ruled in June that DACA recipients do not qualify for in-state tuition, a decision Arizona Board of Regents President Eileen Klein does not agree with.
The Arizona Board of Regents voted to appeal the ruling, but Klein is hopeful that Congress makes a more permanent decision regarding the future of DACA recipients.
