Some colleges to offer in-state tuition rates to ASSET students this summer

It took 10 years of legislation, but there were smiles all around Monday when Governor John Hickenlooper signed Colorado ASSET (Senate Bill 33) into law on the campus of Metropolitan State University. Some state colleges and universities will begin offering in-state tuition rates to ASSET students this summer, while all public Colorado colleges and universities will offer the rate to eligible undocumented students this fall.

The SB 33 implementation process is fully underway. The Colorado Department of Higher Education has a role in implementing the new law. Colleges and universities have a role in setting up their systems to determine if students are eligible for ASSET after they apply and are accepted.

The best source of information is Colorado ASSET, the home of the Colorado Higher Education Access Alliance (HEAA). Students, parents, college officials, high school teachers and counselors, and members of the public can get information on this site about how ASSET is being implemented.

We hope you will read the historic SB 33 and thank the bill’s sponsors for their work this session. You can find their contact information on the Legislature’s web site directory.
