Ten Years In The Making, Colorado Tuition Bill Becomes Law

0

"Governor Hickenlooper signed the Colorado ASSET bill into law Monday, surrounded by students and civic and government leaders.  The signing ceremony marked the end of a ten year journey through the Colorado legislature. The bill allows those living in the country illegally to attend college with in-state tuition.  According to the Higher Education Access Alliance, to qualify, students must attend a Colorado high school for at least 3 years ‘immediately preceding graduation.’ The student must also provided documents showing ‘they have applied for lawful presence or will apply as soon as they are able.’ " - KUNC, Apr. 29, 2013
