FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4)– Colorado State University is giving its support to give undocumented students in-state tuition.
The CSU Board of Governors voted on Friday to support the Colorado Senate bill that would give illegal immigrants access to in-state tuition rates.
One board member said it would open the door to qualified students who might not be able to go to college otherwise.
The bill would allow those students to receive in-state tuition rates at public universities in Colorado.
The students would have to attend high school in the U.S., graduate and work towards citizenship in addition to other requirements.
