HB 2787: What is it?
Oregon SB1563 made updates to the original House Bill 2787 permitting certain students an exemption from nonresident tuition and fees at Oregon public universities. In summary, OSU may grant in-state tuition for undocumented students who have met all of the following criteria:
What does it mean?
First-time undergraduates (freshmen and transfers) who are admitted to Oregon State University, and meet the requirements of HB 2787/SB1563, may be assessed in-state tuition rates at Oregon State University. Please note: the assessment of in-state tuition rates under HB 2787 does not change a student’s residency status.
How to apply?
Students should follow the normal steps to apply for admission. Students wishing to be considered for in-state tuition rates under HB 2787 should apply using a domestic admissions application and answer the citizenship question as ‘non-U.S. citizen’. Before an application for admission will be considered complete, a student will need to submit either an Tuition Equity Affidavit or our Tuition Equity Statement, whichever is appropriate to the student’s individual situation. Completion of one of these documents is required if you are an undocumented student.
