Tuition Equity at Middlesex

What is Tuition Equity?

It is a new state law that allows qualifying non-U.S. citizens, including undocumented students, to be eligible for in-state tuition and qualify for state financial aid programs in Massachusetts.

Who is eligible?

You may qualify for the Tuition Equity program if you:
  • Are a non-US citizen student, including undocumented students – determine your qualifying status
  • Attended high school in Massachusetts for 3+ years
  • Earned a Massachusetts high school diploma or the equivalent, including GED or HiSET
  • Are admitted to a Massachusetts college or university like MCC
