Arizona ‘in-state’ policy change benefits Navajo students

education-620FARMINGTON, N.M. — Navajo Nation students who live in New Mexico or Utah stand to benefit from a policy change approved by the Arizona Board of Regents.

Under the policy change, Native American students who are enrolled members of a federally recognized tribe whose reservation lies entirely or partially in Arizona will be eligible for in-state tuition rates at Arizona’s three state universities.

The Navajo Reservation is located in northeastern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico and southeastern Utah.

The Daily Times of Farmington reports that the change takes effect in the spring semester.

Non-resident students attending Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona pay tuition rates that are higher than the rates paid by state residents.
