A ballot measure in support of noncitizen residents receiving in-state tuition and financial aid will be presented to Arizona voters in the Nov. 8, 2022, election.
Sen. Paul Boyer (R-20) introduced the ballot measure known as the Senate Concurrent Resolution 1044 to the Arizona State Senate. In March, the ballot measure passed 17-13 in support of putting SCR 1044 on the ballot.
SCR 1044 may revoke Arizona Proposition 300, which prohibited noncitizens and people without legal residential status from receiving in-state tuition.
About 71% of voters approved Proposition 300 in the 2006 ballot.
In-state tuition rates more than doubled for DACA recipients and Dreamers. At ASU, the average in-state tuition is $11,338 and out-of-state tuition is $29,428.
