AN ACT CONCERNING ACCESS TO POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION.

OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact:

Agency Affected

Fund-Effect

Constituent Units of Higher Education

Tuition Fund - None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

Extending in-state tuition status to people without legal immigration status who reside in Connecticut and meet certain criteria is not anticiapted to result in a fiscal impact to the constituent units of higher education.

The University of Connecticut and the Connecticut State University System have policies or the ability to adjust the ratio of in-state to out-of-state students and therefore can make charging in-state tuition to persons without legal immigration status who reside in Connecticut revenue neutral. The Regional Community-Technical Colleges currently have no such persons paying out-of-state tuition and therefore it is anticipated charging in-state tuition would result in no fiscal impact.

The Out Years

None
