Repository of Resources for Undocumented Students
Rincon, Alejandra
College Board
Undocumented immigrants face tremendous difficulties when seeking a higher education. The imposition of out-of-state tuition fees effectively keeps them out of college in most of the United States. In 14 states, in-state tuition laws allow these students to pay lower fees and, in a few cases, access state financial aid. However, even in these 14 states, undocumented students, their families and educators face several difficulties when trying to access information on admission policies, financial aid and scholarships, as well as on support organizations. Although this compilation is by no means exhaustive, it provides an important step toward the identification of current available resources for students and educators in the states that have passed in-state tuition laws. It is important to note that because information on certain resources was not readily available (i.e., financial aid in Kansas or Wisconsin or student organizations in New Mexico and Oklahoma), a general list was also generated to aid students in those states. That list is provided at the end of the document. Appended are: (1) California Nonresident Tuition Exemption Request Form; (2) Washington HB1079, English Version; and (3) Washington HB1079, Spanish Version.
