A.R.S. Section 15-1802: The Maricopa Colleges require all students to answer a series of questions on college enrollment forms in response to the passage of A.R.S. Section 15-1802. This law does not prevent anyone from enrolling in the Maricopa Community Colleges. To comply with the law, students are asked to provide information about their citizenship or legal status. To qualify for in-state tuition, students must provide documentation as proof of lawful presence in the United States. Acceptable documents include a birth certificate, an Arizona driver license or ID card issued after 1996, and official immigration papers. Proof of residency does not apply to non-credit courses. We invite you to visit maricopa.edu/Prop 300 for additional information. Also, see Enrollment Services or Residency Guidelines in the General Catalog.
