A Study of Resident Fee Status for Certain Nonimmigrant Aliens. A Report in Response to Senate Resolution 1975-144.
Washington State Council for Postsecondary Education, Olympia.
In recent years there have been a number of proposals to extend resident tuition and fee status to certain groups of foreign nationals (E-1) in the State of Washington. An E-1 national is "any nonimmigrant alien entitled to enter the United States under and in pursuance of the provisions of a treaty of commerce and navigation between the United States and the foreign state of which he or she is a national ...." Information gathered revealed that: (1) the number of persons residing in Washington with E-1 visas is unknown but appears to be small; (2) there are only two students currently enrolled who have E-1 visas; (3) the fiscal impact of extending resident benefits is small; and (4) a bill such as that proposed would satisfy legal requirements. Recommendations were that the Council for Postsecondary Education endorse the proposed bill with the provision that such nonimmigrant aliens must meet all other residency requirements prescribed by law.
