Things to Know: Prop 308 – In State Tuition for Undocumented AZ Students

Dear AZ Scholars,

We are thrilled that the Arizona voters passed Proposition 308 this past summer which provides qualifying undocumented students access to in-state tuition and financial aid funded with state money (e.g., tuition waivers, fee waivers, grants, and scholarships). 

To qualify for in-state tuition or financial aid, undocumented students must have:

  1. Attended an Arizona public or private high school, or homeschool for a minimum of two years; and
  2. Graduated from an Arizona public or private high school, or homeschool equivalent, or obtained an Arizona high school equivalency diploma, i.e., a general equivalency diploma (GED).

Things to know:

  • Students with certain visa statuses (including F1, F2, J1, H4, or H1) are not eligible for Prop. 308. In some cases, students can become eligible once their visas expire. We advise students to email Pedro from the Aliento team [ [email protected] ] with visa questions.
  • Prop. 308 does not include in-state tuition for dual-enrollment courses because of the requirement of Prop. 308 is to graduate from high school before becoming eligible.
  • As with any new legislation, it takes time for the process to be in place. So, you should be persistent when seeking out these opportunities and seek help from your Scholar or Financial Aid Advisors here.
