Governor Scott and the Florida legislature are supporting bills that will allow particular undocumented immigrants to pay in-state college tuition rates. Currently, Governor Scott is supporting the Senate’s version of the bill (SB 1400), which also bars universities from raising tuition above a certain level and “keeps college affordable for Florida’s students.” The House version of the bill (HB 851) is expected to pass with bi-partisan support, and receive a full vote of the House in the coming weeks. There is also support for this proposal from Florida colleges and universities. FIU and Miami Dade College already provide partial tuition waivers to some students with DACA status.
