Arizona Supreme Court Denies DACA Students In-State Tuition

(From NPR)

Arizona students protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will no longer be eligible for in-state college tuition, the state Supreme Court ruled Monday.

The 7-0 ruling upheld an earlier decision in the Court of Appeals last year that said DACA recipients, often called DREAMers, who have been granted “lawful status” but not “legal status” do not qualify to pay resident rates.

Monday’s decision will affect more than 2,000 students enrolled in Arizona’s community colleges and three public universities.

The fee changes will take effect immediately and in some cases more than triple the annual cost of attendance.
