DENVER – Mayor Michael B. Hancock today applauded Metropolitan State College of Denver and the Board of Trustees’ for passing the “Colorado Unsubsidized Tuition Rate.” The Mayor released the following statement:
“Today, I applaud Metro State and their Board for approving a new tuition rate for Colorado students who -- through no fault of their own -- do not have lawful status to be eligible for in-state tuition.
“With this vote, the Board took a courageous step to provide all of Denver and the state of Colorado’s students with opportunities they need and deserve to succeed in a global economy. This tuition rate will not only provide students greater access to postsecondary education, but will help the entire state realize the investment we’ve made in our students throughout their academic careers.
“The City of Denver is proud to have this local college act boldly to help all our students fulfill their potential, help strengthen our workforce and help create a sustainable economy.”
