Ten Years In The Making, Colorado Tuition Bill Becomes Law

"Governor Hickenlooper signed the Colorado ASSET bill into law Monday, surrounded by students and civic and government leaders.  The signing ceremony marked the end of a ten year journey through the Colorado legislature. The bill allows those living in the country illegally to attend college with in-state tuition.  According to the Higher Education Access Alliance, to qualify, students must attend a Colorado high school for at least 3 years ‘immediately preceding graduation.’ The student must also provided documents showing ‘they have applied for lawful presence or will apply as soon as they are able.’ " - KUNC, Apr. 29, 2013.
