Students who've graduated from Missouri high schools, but who can't prove their U.S. citizenship or legal immigration status, will soon pay less to enroll in community college classes in St. Louis.
Until now, undocumented students have paid the international student rate of $204 per credit hour at all St. Louis Community College campuses.
Starting with the semester that begins in January, their tuition rates will be based on where they live. Those who live in district will pay $98.00 per credit hour -- cutting their tuition bills in half.
At least 18 states around the nation, including Illinois, offer similar benefits as a matter of state law. Missouri does not.
