Arizona Provides In-State Tuition To Federally Recognized Tribes

In a story Dec. 30, The Associated Press reported that Navajo Nation students who live in New Mexico and Utah stand to gain from a policy change approved by the Arizona Board of Regents. The story should have specified that the policy change provides in-state tuition rates to students who are enrolled members of sovereign federally recognized tribes whose reservations lie entirely or partially in Arizona, regardless of where the students live. That means the students can live anywhere in the country and be eligible if they are enrolled members of the specified tribes.
