“Students who meet these criteria shall be eligible for in-state tuition regardless of their citizenship or immigration status”
Gov. Ralph Northam (D) signed a bill into Virginia law that will allow illegal immigrant students to qualify for in-state tuition.
Similar measures, HB 1547 and SB 935, were introduced by Democratic Virginia state lawmakers. Each chamber passed its respective bill largely along party lines. Northam signed the reconciled legislation into law. It took effect on July 1.
In order to qualify for the discounted tuition rate, the prospective student must have attended, for at least two years, a public or private high school in Virginia, been homeschooled in Virginia, or passed a high school equivalency test. The bill requires students to provide proof of “income tax returns for at least two years prior to the date of registration or enrollment.”
“Students who meet these criteria shall be eligible for in-state tuition regardless of their citizenship or immigration status,” the two bills state.
