INFORMATION ABOUT IN-STATE TUITION in NEW YORK

Undocumented students who reside in New York may be eligible to pay the NY resident tuition rate as long as they fulfill one of the following requirements:

  • They were enrolled in CUNY for the Fall 2001 semester, and qualified for in-state tuition at that time; or
  • They attended a New York State high school for two or more years, graduated, and applied to attend a CUNY institution within five years of receiving a New York State diploma; or
  • They attended an approved New York State program for the General Educational Development (GED) exam preparation, received a GED from New York State, and applied to attend a CUNY institution within five years of receiving the New York State GED. GED holders who graduated from High School either in the United States or overseas are not eligible for this benefit.

Once you are accepted to college, to get in-state tuition, undocumented immigrants must file a Residency Form, which includes an affidavit stating that they have applied to legalize their status, OR that they will apply to do so as soon as they are eligible. Ask your college for a residency form.
