Wisconsin Offers In-State Tuition to Undocumented Students

Voces de la Frontera, news, Posted: Jun 30, 2009

MILWAUKEE -- The Wisconsin state budget signed by Gov. Jim Doyle on Monday includes a provision that would require universities to charge in-state tuition rates to undocumented students who have lived in Wisconsin at least three years prior to graduating from high school or obtaining a GED. This makes Wisconsin the eleventh state to make this change after Texas, Oklahoma, New York, California, Nebraska, Kansas, Utah, Illinois, New Mexico and Washington, reports Voces de la
Frontera. Community groups lauded the provision, although they were disappointed by the removal of another provision that would have granted driver's licenses to immigrants.
