For the past 10 years, youth, students, and allies have long been working for the passage of the New Jersey Tuition Equality Act, aka the New Jersey Dream Act.
The New Jersey Dream Act would allow undocumented youth, who have lived in New Jersey and have attended a NJ high school (at least 3 yrs) and have a diploma or GED, to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universitites.
Currently, NJ Dreamers have to pay out-of-state tuition, or international tuition, even though many have lived in New Jersey for their entire lives.
Iit seems that the New Jersey Dream Act is getting closer and closer to becoming a reality.
This November 18th, the NJ SENATE PASSED THE NEW JERSEY DREAM ACT!!!
