In-State Tuition Classification Institution Of Higher Education

Concerning policies relating to in-state tuition classification at state-supported institutions of higher education.
2023 Regular Session
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)
Bill Summary

The act adds information to the department of higher education's current annual reporting requirement as it relates to Colorado scholars.

Current law limits the number of Colorado scholars that each institution counts in an academic year to 8% of the total number of in-state students. The act increases that limit to 15%.

The act requires a peace corps volunteer to be classified as an in-state student for tuition purposes if the student was certified by the director of the peace corps as having served satisfactorily as a peace corps volunteer. A peace corps volunteer who is classified as an in-state student must not be counted as a resident student for any purpose other than tuition classification.

APPROVED by Governor April 11, 2023
