Maryland Dream Act Awaits Senate Vote

Play associated audio

The bill, modeled after the failed federal DREAM Act, was amended last week to require that affected students attend community college in the jurisdiction where they went to high school before qualifying for in-state tuition rates at a four-year college or university.

Senators also amended the bill to require a student to spend three years in high school -- instead of two -- to be eligible for in-state tuition.

Currently, 10 states allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition.

CORRECTION: The original post stated that 11 other states currently offer in-state tuition. Maryland would be the 11th, if the bill passes.
