Default In-State Tuition

First, I have written to our Senator, more than a week ago. I know, I should have posted on this forum earlier...my bad!

Second, by way of information, let me also add that here in Georgia, children of legal immigrants get in-state tuition if a 485 has been filed for them. Both my children are paying in-state tuition only. However, this is available in state colleges only, it is evident. I had to submit pay stubs and a letter from employer in lieu of employment verification.

Hope it helps.
Thanks for your support.

Yes, it is possible to get in-state tuition even for H4 students in many states. But, they are not eligible for any Financial Assistance in State or Private Universities.

Those of us affected try hard to raise the issue on a forum of thousands of employment based immigration applicants and the response is non existent, over and over again.

Have you ever heard the saying 'If you cannot say something positive then say nothing at all'?
Yes, it is disheartening to see the poor response by the thousands of IV members to this critical issue. If everyone wants to participate in only the issues that affect them directly today and do not want to even bother about closely related issues, I foresee no solution to any of our issues in the near future...

EXACTLY!! thats exactly what I am thinking. Everybody has their own set of problems and somehow think that only that matters. While the ilegal group has identified all the problems and are tackling every bit of it massively. Ofcourse we are very few but more than that, the support and comradery is very minimal within EB group.

Rego you mentioned your kids were sent to canada for education? do they have canadian PR? citizenship? just curious. My kid is 9 years from the deadline but still these days news about GC have been really frustating. I am thinking other options too. Pls let me know (you could PM me also if you consider that better).

Hallo, is anybody who is either aged out or has kids that will age out soon/near future, willing to talk to a journalist?? The issue will be reported to a wide audience including law makers. Please come forward and let me know. If this particular journalist has already contacted you then I would highly encourage you to provide the necessary information.

We should be submitting our comments to the DREAM Act articles. College Board had a big release today. There are a few comments on extending it to legal children. We need to express support by submitting comments and writing responses.

The link is
http://blog.globalvisas.com/college-...l#comment-3143.

It may be a good idea to spread the word around as much as possible, without worrying about those who do not support
