PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Board of Regents says students who have received work visas under the Obama administration's deferred deportation program will not be eligible for in-state tuition.

The regents issued a statement Friday, clarifying that the legal options the board's staff will explore for reducing tuition for some immigrants won't include in-state tuition. Other options may include lower tuition rates compared to the current nonresident rates these students currently pay.

The board says state law prohibits any person who doesn't have lawful immigration status to be classified as an in-state student for purposes of tuition. It also prohibits the use of state taxpayer dollars to fund financial aid for these students.

The board says it has no plans to consider any policy changes that would violate the law.
