California must give all students, no matter where they come from, the same exact tuition!


Where are illegals going to work, once the graduate?

No more free lunches on my tax dollar.

The tuition should be the same as someone "out of state" pays.

No more free lunches. I'm sick of subsidizing it. You want an education you should pay for it.

I thought the court ruling was focusing on Illegals being charged out-of-state tuition.

You can now be a resident of any other nation and the UC system must charge you as a California resident. But if you lived in another state, then you would still be 'out-of-state'.

That penalizes the American over a foreign citizen.
It is unconstitutional.

People that try this crap, need to sit in jail for even trying to go against the highest law of the land.

The suit was filed in 2005 by out-of-state students attending California colleges. They challenged the state’s practice of allowing illegal immigrants to pay significantly lower tuition than they pay at the University of California, the California State University and the California Community Colleges.
UC charges out-of-state students nearly $18,000 a year more than it charges resident and undocumented students who graduated from California high schools. At CSU, out-of-state students pay about $8,000 more. And at the state’s 110 community colleges, they pay an average of about $160 a unit instead of $20 per unit – or $1,920 for a full load instead of $240.
The suit was dismissed by the Yolo County Superior Court in 2006, setting up the appeal.

It would be much different if these were totally private universities.
They are not. They are heavily subsidized by Federal funds.

When they charge undocumented graduates of Californian schools less than students from the other states, they assume those aliens are rooted in California, which seems reasonable to me.
Regarding foreigners, I assume they know they won't attract bright heads from abroad if they charge too much, while paying a lot for college is normal to Americans no matter which state they are from.
