SB 253

Utah Senate Bill 253 (2015)

As of May 12, 2015, Utah SB 253 makes it so any student who graduates from a Utah high school (regardless of high school graduation year) IS NOT required to provide proof of lawful U.S. presence for scholarships or tuition waivers in Utah’s public colleges and universities (link).
