HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut’s undocumented students are again calling on the General Assembly to give them access to financial aid at state universities.

Connecticut lawmakers passed a law back in 2011 allowing undocumented students, also known as Dreamers, to pay in-state tuition rates at the state’s public universities. The group is now fighting for access to financial aid at these schools.

These public universities are required to set aside 15 percent of tuition for institutional aid, which means these Dreamers are already contributing to the type of financial aid they are seeking.
