The Commonwealth of Massachusetts “High School Completers” Tuition Equity Law was passed on July 1, making it easier for students undocumented, non-US citizen students to receive in-state tuition rates. Students from all over Massachusetts can now go to college at a more affordable cost. The Tuition Equity Law helps certain students who are not U.S. citizens, including undocumented students, if they meet the same high school requirements. Learn more at MA Tuition Equity.
