Undocumented immigrants will soon be able to pay in-state college tuition at public universities in Colorado, under a bill that has been approved by the state legislature.
Gov. John Hickenlooper is expected to sign the measure that allows the lower tuition rate for undocumented immigrant students who graduate from Colorado high schools. These students currently have to pay a nonresident tuition rate, which can cost three times as much as the in-state rate, the Associated Press reports.
Similar proposals had been defeated six times in Colorado over the last ten years. At least 13 other states allow undocumented immigrants to attend college at in-state rates, AP reports.
