Under LB92, introduced by Sen. Robert Clements of Elmwood, students who complete the program of instruction offered by a home school are considered residents for tuition purposes.

The bill also prohibits a publicly funded college or university in Nebraska from discriminating against any student with regard to determinations of residency status or scholarship eligibility on the basis of having been home-schooled.

LB92 passed on a vote of 43-0.
