Removing Barriers to Higher Education: The Economic Benefit of Tuition Opportunity in Tennessee (2018 Update)
In this brief, we use data from the American Community Survey, as well as the Chronicle of Higher Education, to update and refine our 2015 estimates on the impact of passing Tuition Opportunity legislation in Tennessee. The Tennessee General Assembly has debated Tuition Opportunity legislation in years past, and is again considering a bill that would exempt certain undocumented students from paying out-of-state tuition at state institutions of higher education. Our research puts the benefits of passing this legislation into concrete, economic terms.
