In-State Tuition

During the 2020 General Assembly session, we were successful in getting SB935 In-State Tuition Passed for members of the undocu+ community. In-State tuition access will allow undocumented students to be eligible for in-state tuition at Virginia’s Colleges and Universities after graduation.

We are working to ensure that Virginia’s Colleges and Universities are creating inclusive policies so everyone feels welcome. Students deserve an opportunity to have not only to allow students to get an higher education but to make sure they have an inclusive environment.

See below guidance from one of our partners, Legal Aid Justice Center on details on how to be eligible.
