Press Release

Phoenix, AZ – Today the Arizona Board of Regents announced that it will comply with Judge Arthur Anderson’s ruling and will allow DACA students who meet the residency requirements to pay in-state tuition at Arizona universities.

Rep. Ruben Gallego released the following statement:

“Access to in state-tuition will make a huge difference in the lives of DREAMers who want nothing more than to get a higher education degree and until now haven’t been able to do so because of tuition costs.

“It is a great day for DREAMers and immigrant families in Arizona. I want to thank the Arizona Board of Regents for complying with the court ruling and approving in-state tuition for DACA recipients in our state and congratulate DREAMers in Arizona on a well-deserved victory.”
