HB 144 is a House Bill that passed in 2002, in the state of Utah that allows qualifying undocumented students to pay in-state tuition if he or she attends a Utah college or university. This means that even though a student does not have residency status, they may attend Weber State University at the same rate as Utah residents. In-state tuition is more affordable than out-of-state tuition, allowing students to pay less for the same education.
