Description

Public institutions of higher education; admission, in-state tuition, and tuition waivers; members of certain American Indian tribes. Requires each public institution of higher education to establish and implement an admissions policy whereby a certain number of annual offers of student admission is reserved for individuals who are members of a state-recognized or federally recognized American Indian tribe that is headquartered in the Commonwealth. The bill declares eligible for in-state tuition charges regardless of domicile any non-Virginia student who is a member of a state-recognized or federally recognized American Indian tribe that is headquartered in the Commonwealth. The bill also provides that any student who is a member of a state-recognized or federally recognized American Indian tribe headquartered in the Commonwealth and who has been admitted to a public institution of higher education is eligible for a tuition waiver up to the amount necessary to cover the last-dollar cost of the institution's in-state tuition and mandatory fees after all other federal and state financial aid to which the student is entitled is taken into account.
