Assuming that the document is currently "the law" and that the Underlined and Striken portions are changes in the law, i don't see that wording in there. (i just skimmed it)

It appears to mean illegal imigration and other non US citicens

I also called FSU and they told me that they knew of no such changes in the law

I pulled the link from the pre-law board posted by "blapper." It's supposed to effect FL residency. I think he might have just gotten the link wrong though. I work in an another Florida college and we've heard rumors of a bill as well.

I read the bill and I think it said that in order to be considered a Florida resident for tuition purposes you must be a dependent of a resident of Florida, or have lived and worked full time in the state for the past 12 months.  This seems to be a change from the current law that allows residency after 12 months while attending school (not necessarily working).

This would absolutely suck.  It passed through both the house and the senate, and I can't find any info on whether or not Gov. Bush will veto or approve it.

I read it the same way southbound.

i'm not going to FSU, but in response to getting residency.  hmph.  i went to UF for undergrad.  i was in a 5 year program (engineering + plus i drank too much one year).  my scholarship was for four years, so I applied for in-state tuition for the 5th year.

DENIED DENIED DENIED.

the only thing i didn't do was buy a condo.  i had practically everything else.

HTH.  don't count on establishing residence.  if you're so bent on it, defer for a year, move to tally and bartend, then enroll.

My fiance is a graduate student and he had no trouble changing after a year.

UF is a pain in the ass about these things. Criser made me submit my residency info 3 times. They accepted me as a FL resident after the 3rd submission. Provided this new law doesn't pass, the key to getting residency,at least at UF, is appeal,appeal,appeal.

yes, the govoner is not expected to sign the bill.  so it is dead, at least for now.

Actually, I felt like I was the only person without a tan in the school when we showed up.
