The Tuition Equity law (Oregon House Bill 2787) provides that undocumented students who meet certain criteria are exempt from nonresident tuition and fees—in other words, they would pay the same rates as Oregon residents—for five years after initial enrollment at a public university in Oregon.

Who does the law affect?

  • Eligible students who are not citizens or lawful permanent residents of the United States
  • Eligible students who are financially dependent upon a person who is not a citizen or a lawful permanent resident of the United States

What are the eligibility criteria?

To be eligible, students must

  • attend school in the United States for at least five years
  • study at a high school in Oregon for at least three years
