(This amendment provides $200,000 for SCHEV to develop and maintain an application portal related to implementation of Senate Bill 1387, which provides that students who meet the criteria in the Code of Virginia that determine eligibility for in-state tuition regardless of their citizenship or immigration status shall be afforded the same educational benefits, including access to state financial assistance programs, as any other individual who is eligible for in-state tuition. The bill has a delayed effective date of August 1, 2022, but directs the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, in coordination with institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth, to promulgate regulations to implement the provisions of the bill and develop the application portal in the interim. The portal will require additional privacy and security to collect financial aid data that SCHEV and institutions do not currently collect.)
