A little-known policy of the Board of Regents could blunt the financial effect of a new court ruling denying dreamers in-state tuition.

The policy says anyone who is a graduate of an Arizona high school but does not otherwise meet the definition of “residency” can attend any of the state’s three universities for 150 percent of what in-state students are charged.

That would still be a financial hit for those affected, pushing tuition at the University of Arizona, for example, up to more than $17,000 a year. By contrast, tuition and mandatory fees for this coming year for continuing Arizona undergrads is $12,228.

But it’s still far better than what it would cost if these students were forced to pay full out-of-state tuition of $32,429.
