States clarify tuition policies for Illegal Alien students

States clarify tuition policies for Illegal Alien students.. New laws clarifying tuition charges for illegal aliens at public colleges are poised to go into effect in three states this summer, bringing to 13 the number of states that allow such students to pay lower, in-state rates and to five the number that forbid it. (example, the sticker price last year was $8,416 for in-state students and $24,831 for non-residents in Maryland....in other words, illegals pay the lower price, children of American Citizens pay the full price...EACH AND EVERY ONE SHOULD BE FIGHTING THIS IN YOUR STATES)

  1. States grant benefits to illegal aliens. They are: California, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin

    Maryland will join 11 other states this summer in allowing illegal aliens attending public colleges to pay in-state tuition, and Connecticut's governor has said he will sign a similar bill passed last month in that state. Indiana's governor has signed legislation making it the fifth state to deny the lower resident rates to such students.

    Illinois, which already grants a tuition break to illegal alien students, just passed a bill that will make it easier for them to receive financial aid. And California may soon pass a similar proposal.

    •Oregon and Rhode Island are among states still considering education benefits for illegal alien students, and an Alabama proposal to deny resident tuition rates has passed the House and Senate. Measures to either grant or deny tuition breaks have died in at least six states.

    •Though a Georgia bill to ban illegal enrollments didn't pass, the University System of Georgia's board of regents OK'd a plan, to go into effect this fall, that bans illegal alien students from state public universities that have turned away other academically qualified students in the past two years.

    •A Montana measure that passed this year will allow voters to decide in November 2012 whether to deny public university benefits to illegal alien college students
