A judge in Miami ruled on Tuesday, September 4th, that students in public universities who are US citizens cannot be charged out-of-state tuition rates simply for having undocumented parents. While in-state tuition at the University of Florida costs $205 per credit hour, out-of-state tuition costs $947 per credit hour and this is what some in-state students were being charged. Moreover, having been born in the United States, they were citizens.
