HBA-DC Supports the UDC Dream Amendment Act of 2015

Saturday, October 15, 2016  
On October 6, 2016, HBA-DC sent a letter to the Council of the District of Columbia supporting passage of the UDC DREAM Amendment Act of 2015.  The bill would allow District residents, regardless of their federal immigration status, to pay in-state tuition rates and to receive local financial aid for attendance at any University of the District of Columbia (UDC) school or campus, provided that the resident meets certain graduation and residency requirements.  At UDC, annual in-state tuition is approximately $7,500 and non-resident tuition is twice as much.  If passed, thousands of undocumented students would have the opportunity to advance their education and improve career opportunities.  The letter is available here.
