College students at UNLV recently learned that illegal immigrants receive automatic in-state tuition in 18 states around the country, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington. Liberal and conservative students agreed that the practice is unfair.
  • The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled recently that Georgia colleges do not have to admit illegal immigrant students.
  • Eighteen states currently provide a pathway for illegal immigrant students to get in-state tuition, while legal U.S. residents from other states are forced to pay thousands more for out-of-state tuition.
  • Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips spoke with students at UN-LV and they were not supportive.

The Eleventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that colleges in Georgia are not required to admit illegal immigrant students. 

The decision further sparked a national conversation about the rights of Dreamers, as well as the legality of offering them in-state tuition benefits, which usually allow students attending college in their home states to pay far less than their peers from different states.  “What do you get for living here all your life legally instead of coming here illegally? I just don’t think that’s fair.”    Tweet This

Citing US Code 1623, which states that anyone who is not legally a citizen cannot be entitled to any benefit that is denied to a citizen of the United States, some have questioned whether those here illegally should be offered in-state tuition rates that aren’t available to other students who are citizens. Currently, 18 states, offer some form of a pathway for in-state tuition to those living here illegally.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 18 states — California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington — offer in-state tuition to illegal immigrant students. Two more states — Oklahoma and Rhode Island — offer in-state tuition to illegal immigrant students, pending approval from the Board of Regents.
