HB1079 Awareness Week at UW

HB1079, passed in 2003, allows some undocumented students to qualify for in-state college tuition. The cost difference is substantial, over $12,000 per year at UW-Tacoma. In-State tuition for the 2012-2013 academic year at the UW Tacoma is $11,900. Out of state tuition is nearly $30,000 per academic year.

To qualify to be an HB1079 student you have lived in Washington state at least three years, and you meet one of the following requirements:

  • You graduated from a Washington state high school and you completed your senior year of high school in Washington; or
  • You earned the equivalent of a high school diploma, such as a GED.
