Colorado ASSET Signed By Governor Hickenlooper

COLORADO GOVERNOR JOHN HICKENLOOPER SIGNS COLORADO ASSET BILL

Governor Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 33 on April 29, 2013, qualified undocumented students are now able to qualify for in-state tuition!

After ten long years and six bills, Colorado ASSET has passed, and now the real work begins.We are working with counselors, teachers, parents and students to educate as many people as we can that this opportunity exists for our Colorado students.

We are also reaching out to every public college and university in Colorado to help them create a plan for implementing Colorado ASSET. It is up to the institutions of higher education to create their own rules and regulations so please consider all information on this website to be advice and not law.

This website will change on a frequent basis to answer questions and to add lessons learned as we all take this journey together. Please check back often and if you have a question that isn’t answered on this website please email us at ColoradoASSET@gmail.com and we will try to help you.

The best place to start is to select your experience on the left hand menu – are you a student, teacher or college administrator?

Thank you for your support in passing and now implementing Colorado ASSET!

Sincerely,
The Higher Education Access Alliance
