Prop 300 Affects Everyone
Proposition 300, passed by Arizona voters in November 2006, stipulates that college students who are not legal United States citizens or are without lawful immigration status must pay out-of-state tuition.
Who needs Prop 300?
All students must be classified as either a resident student or a non-resident student for tuition purposes. Until you show proof of citizenship status to the college, we are required to charge out-of-state tuition prices.
Requirements for Resident Status:
To qualify for in-state tuition and state financial assistance, students must provide a copy of the Student Declaration form and documentation as proof of lawful presence in the United States. Acceptable documents include a birth certificate, an Arizona driver license or ID card issued after 1996, or official immigration papers.
A complete list of acceptable documentation you can submit as well as the Student Declaration form is available at my.maricopa.edu.
For more information on other ID forms accepted and how to submit online, see our Student Identity Verification page.
