About Tuition Equity: Undocumented students who live in the US and attended school here are sometimes labeled as “international students” during the college admissions process. This they have to pay as much as 3 times the “in-county” or “in-state” tuition rate. Not only do they have to pay more, they also do not have access to Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) or most scholarships, making higher education inaccessible to these students.
