Massachusetts expanded access to in-state tuition, as well as state financial aid to undocumented students on July 1, 2023 through their “High School Completers” tuition equity law. Before the passage of this law, recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) were eligible for in-state tuition at all public colleges and universities in Massachusetts and DACA recipients and undocumented students were not eligible for state financial aid.
