Do all undocumented students pay out-of-state tuition rates for college?
It depends on the state where you go to college. The Texas Dream Act of 2001 provides in-state tuition at Texas colleges and universities for undocumented students if they meet certain requirements:
- Graduated from a Texas high school, or earned a high school equivalency diploma (GED) in Texas.
- Lived in Texas for three years before enrolling in a Texas higher education institution.
- Signed an affidavit (sworn statement) saying that they will seek legal residency as soon as possible.
