It is actually illegal to marry somebody just so they can reside here, and the penalties can be rather substantial. Somebody marrying a foreigner needs to make sure the marriage lasts some time, or they could face jail time.

Can she get a student visa? And attend college here?

BTW, the proper spelling is "Filipino". The country is the "Philippines" but the people are spelled with an "F".
