EMU Students In US Illegally Get In-State Tuition

Posted: Updated:

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Eastern Michigan University plans to allow students living in the U.S. without legal permission to qualify for in-state tuition starting with the fall semester of 2014.

The Ypsilanti school's Board of Regents approved a plan Tuesday to allow students who have attended a Michigan high school at least three years and graduated to qualify for in-state tuition.

Full details of Eastern Michigan's plans are on its website.

In addition to Michigan residents and those attending Michigan high schools, the school also offers in-state tuition through service in the U.S. military. And in 2012, the school adopted a program for children of out-of-state alumni to pay in-state rates.

Some other Michigan schools offer students in the country illegally to pay tuition at the same rate as in-state students.
