Students who entered the country illegally and were attending Indiana public colleges when a state immigration law passed two years ago would again be eligible for in-state tuition rates.
The bill was approved by the Indiana House yesterday. Rep. Rebecca Kubacki of Syracuse said the change would help a couple hundred students who had the rules changed on them after they had already started work on their college degrees.
Affected immigrants still couldn't receive state college financial aid and new students wouldn't be eligible for in-state tuition. The Senate previously approved its own version of the bill.
