The federal and state legislation will no longer permit the Maricopa County Community Colleges to offer in-state tuition for members of DACA. On Monday, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that DACA recipients are ineligible for in-state tuition at Arizona public colleges. He said that does not run afoul of the 2006 voter-approved law at issue in the case before the Supreme Court which spells out that any person who is not a USA citizen or "legal resident" or is "without lawful immigration status" is ineligible to be charged the same tuition at state colleges and universities available to residents.
An explanation of the Arizona Supreme Court's ruling will be issued by May 14.
Until Monday, these young DACA beneficiaries were able to "receive lower in-state tuition rates at Arizona State University, University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University since 2015", explained NBC News.
Supporters of the Board of Regents' 2017 decision to grant in-state tuition to Arizona DACA recipients say the ruling is a loss for the state's educational system.
Regent Jay Heiler, who came up with the concept, said that eliminates any conflict with a 2006 voter-approved law which spells out that any person who is not a USA citizen or "legal resident" or is "without lawful immigration status" is ineligible to be charged the same tuition at state colleges and universities available to residents. Yet the academic future of 18-year-old Yanez and thousands of other Dreamers in Arizona is in doubt.
Sisa said she feels "incredibly disappointed in the state of Arizona" after the decision.

Rates are substantially less than what non-resident students pay. "Our universities will work with now enrolled DACA students to help them understand the implications for tuition", he said in a statement.
"While people can disagree what the law should be, I hope we all can agree that the attorney general must enforce the law as it is, not as we want it to be", Brnovich said in a statement.
The Board of Regents already has a policy on the books, established before the universities begin charging resident tuition, that sets charges at 150 percent of the in-state rate for any student who graduated from an Arizona high school after attending school here for at least three years. But this ruling by the Arizona Supreme Court doubles the tuition cost for DACA recipients.
The president of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition, Karina Ruiz, told the outlet that her group will start raising money to fund emergency scholarships because this is a "state of crisis". Egurrola, who is 24, said that after a moment of disbelief, she urged her friends that this fight had been a long one, and they would find a solution.
Approximately 800,000 young immigrants who have been brought to the state as children and qualify for DACA are legally allowed to work and study in the United States. In that sense, defenders of the in-state tuition policy argue that DACA was meant to provide lawful status to young undocumented immigrants.
Arizona DACA students are also ineligible for federal or state financial aid.
