Question 4, “Dream Act,” passed by Maryland voters

Posted on November 8th, 2012 No Comments

Earlier this week, Maryland voters went to the polls before Election Day to cast their ballot on the hotly debated Question 4–commonly referred to as Maryland’s Dream Act. Question 4 is a law that allows undocumented college students to pay in-state tuition.

The state’s Democrat-run General Assembly passed Question 4 last year, but opponents were able to put it up for referendum after receiving enough petition signatures. The law passed by 58 percent–the first time such a law has been passed by a popular vote, the Washington Post reports.

For undocumented students to qualify for Question 4, they must first have attended a Maryland high school for at least three years, attend community college for two, and either 1) receive an associate degree before transferring or 2) transfer to a four-year college with at least 60 credit hours.
