Undocument Immigrant students now have access to in-state tuition at Seminole State.

Thanks to a new piece of Florida legislation, undocumented immigrants will now pay the same tuition as other Florida college students.

Florida House Bill 851, or HB851, went into effect on July 1, 2014. The bill contained many changes to the Florida Tuition system. Previously, undocumented students would be unable to provide proof of citizenship which caused them to pay out of state tuition. The passing of this measure allows these students to receive a voucher which makes their tuition the same as a student who can prove in state residency.
