The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Analysis of Admissions and Tuition Policies for Undocumented Students at Big Ten Schools.

Aleixo, Marina, Jacob Chin, Allison Shurilla, and Katherine Fennelly.

In 1982, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Plyler v. Doe that undocumented children must be granted access to public schools at the K–12 level. However, undocumented students’ access to higher education, as well as their ability to qualify for in-state tuition, continues to be the subject of legislation at both the state and federal levels. This article describes the key findings of a project that examined policies and practices related to the college admissions process, as well as in-state tuition eligibility, for undocumented students at Big Ten universities, and concludes with a set of recommendations for changes in state and school policies and further research.
