Senator Ulibarri presented House Bill 16-1178 to the committee. The bill extends in-state tuition classification to any Native American who is a registered member of a federally recognized American Indian Tribe with historical ties to Colorado, beginning in the 2016-17 academic year. Students who are classified for in-state tuition may be counted as a resident student for any purpose, including eligibility for state-funded financial aid and the College Opportunity Fund stipend. The bill applies to all state institutions of higher education except Fort Lewis College, which already provides free tuition to any Native American.
