Equality through Education

We are New Jersey United Students (NJUS), and part of our advocacy for increased access to higher education is support of tuition equity in New Jersey, which would allow for thousands of New Jersey youth to receive the education they’ve earned through hard work and responsibility.

The act would allow undocumented students in New Jersey to pay in state tuition at institutes of higher education instead of being forced to pay out of state costs that are reserved for students who are not already part of the New Jersey community. By attending high school in New Jersey and graduating in the state, we believe that these students have already displayed what it takes to be considered a part of New Jersey and deserve the same opportunity that other members of our community get.
