N.H. House Considers In-State Tuition For Some Undocumented Residents

College students who entered the U.S. illegally could get in-state tuition at University of New Hampshire System schools if they met certain requirements.

The House votes Wednesday on a bill that would require the students to be a graduate of a high school in the state or to have gotten a New Hampshire high school equivalency certificate to be eligible for the in-state rate.

They would have to have had to attend a state high school for three years before graduating or receiving an equivalency certificate and have met all the other criteria for in-state rates.

The students also would be required to apply for legal residency.

Opponents argue it isn't fair for out-of-state students to pay higher tuition than students who are in the country illegally.
