Campus Reform went to the University of Virginia and University of Maryland and asked students there if they would be willing to give up their U.S. citizenship in order to be eligible for in-state tuition. There are currently 22 states where illegal immigrants can be eligible for in-state tuition, which can save thousands of dollars.


The annual cost of tuition for out-of-state students attending UVA is currently $36,720, more than double the in-state tuition rate of $10,016 offered to Virginia residents. Similarly, tuition at the University of Maryland (UMD), a public university in College Park, Md., costs out-of-state students $20,145 more annually.
