COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's higher education chief says illegal immigrants with temporary legal status will soon be able to pay in-state tuition rates at the state's public colleges as long as they meet other residency requirements.
Most of the state's two- and four-year public colleges have previously charged students who are illegal immigrants tuition rates much higher than what other Ohio students pay.
The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/13xgDlR ) that John Carey, chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, sent a letter Wednesday to the state's college presidents notifying them of the changes.
The paper says the letter followed a determination by Attorney General Mike DeWine that illegal immigrant students now may qualify for in-state tuition.
Immigration advocates asking Carey for the change cited the 2012 federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
