Some Arizona State University students unable to prove legal status

Some students at Arizona State University will have to pay out-of-state tuition after failing to prove that they entered the U.S. legally, the East Valley Tribune, a newspaper in the metro Phoenix area, reported.

In compliance with Proposition 300, ASU assessed the status of its 46,217 enrolled residents and discovered that 207 of these students were unable to provide proof of their legal status.

Passed in 2006, Proposition 300 mandates that public colleges and universities ensure that students paying in-state tuition are either U.S. citizens or legal immigrants.
