to Federal law, if a state offers discounted, "in-state"
postsecondary tuition aid to foreign nationals illegally residing
in the United States, it is prohibited from charging any out-of-state
student higher out-of-state tuition rates. The state and its
public institutions must offer the same aid to all legal U.S.
residents regardless of residency.
However, in violation of this federal law, some states currently
give tuition breaks to illegal aliens, but charge American citizens
from other states higher tuition fees.
you are an out-of-state student attending any public postsecondary
school in one of those states and are paying the higher tuition
rates, you may be entitled to a refund.
send us an email with your name, telephone number, the school
you attend, the difference between out-of-state tuition fees
and in-state tuition fees per unit, and the amount that you
feel you've been overcharged.
