University of Michigan regents wants more info on "tuition equality"
Making a case for in-state tuition at the University of Michigan has been tough battle for some students - especially undocumented immigrants.
Daniel Morales was an undocumented resident when he was accepted by the University of Michigan, but he was told he'd have to pay international tuition despite growing up in Michigan.
Morales petitioned the U of M Board of Regents for policy changes, and it seems like they're listening.
More from the Detroit Free Press:
The Board of Regents asked Provost Phil Hanlon to prepare a report on tuition equality for undocumented students, which could be presented as soon as its meeting next week.
It's unclear whether that will lead to a policy change at U-M, which currently charges students without citizenship or a green card out-of-state tuition.
Morales has said that U of M's tuition policies are unjust.
"This is a civil rights fight in which we are restraining a certain population of our community because of something that is not within their control."
Western Michigan University already charges in-state tuition for undocumented Michigan students.
