BOULDER, Colo. – The University of Colorado may soon make a controversial move similar to Metropolitan State College’s decision to cut tuition for undocumented students.

A member of the University’s Board of Regents expressed interest in introducing this measure Tuesday, according to The Daily Camera.

“It is my hope that we can move forward with an in-depth analysis of the legal and financial implications that the Metro State policy raises,” said CU Regent Joe Neguse “If that analysis is positive, I would like to present a proposal to my colleagues in the coming months.”

Metro State adopted new rates for undocumented students in a 7-1 vote last Thursday. 

Undocumented students currently attending CU are paying out-of-state tuition even if they have grown up in Colorado.The difference in rates is over $20,000.
