Bill would offer in-state tuition to undocumented students at Oregon graduate schools

State lawmakers are looking to expand in-state tuition.

If it's voted into law, SB 859 would allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition for public Oregon graduate programs if they:

Qualified for undergraduate tuition equity

Attended Oregon K-12 schools for at least three years, or went to a U.S. school for a minimum of five years

Demonstrate intent to become a U.S. citizen

According to the Higher Education Coordinating Commission, this would currently affect about 250 students.
