Undocumented high school graduates in Arizona will now pay about half as much as they once did to attend the state’s public universities.

The Arizona Board of Regents voted Thursday to make undocumented students eligible for a tuition rate that is 150% of in-state tuition. That means that where undocumented students once paid the out-of-state rate of about $30,000, they will now pay about $16,000.

Rachel Leingang is a reporter for The Arizona Republic, and she joined The Show to talk about the decision.
