  • Undocumented Student Tuition: Overview

    An estimated 65,000 unauthorized immigrant students graduate from United States high schools each year but only five percent of these students attend college. In most states these same students aren't eligible for the significantly lower in-state tuition rates, making higher education a financial hurdle.

We are the nation's most respected bipartisan organization providing states support, ideas, connections and a strong voice on Capitol Hill.
