Before the state of Colorado passed Senate Bill 13-033, the ASSET Bill, Colorado State University (CSU) administration was mostly unaware that undocumented students were attending the institution. Since the law allows DREAMers to attend public institutions in Colorado at the resident tuition rate, the university has seen a dramatic shift both in interest in attending CSU and actual enrollment. This session will detail how CSU followed a best-practices approach to recruiting, awarding, enrolling and supporting undocumented students on their quest of obtaining a higher education.
