Arizona DACA Beneficiaries React to the Introduction of the 2017 DREAM Act

Out-Of-State Tuition but Never Out-of-Hope
Today, Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) will be deciding whether to appeal or not appeal the court’s decision regarding in-state tuition. Aliento leaders, students, educators, and members of the community come together to thank MCCCD for providing in-state tuition for DACA students and to ask them to be courageous again and appeal so many students can achieve their dream of higher education.
Congratulations To Our Founder!
The overturn of in-state tuition weighs heavy on me. For two years, I paid for all my college expenditures out of my own pocket. Only once I received a scholarship of one hundred dollars to help me pay for a semester. To me, it was a blessing to have the ability to pay for my own education at PVCC.
