The Tennessee State Legislature recently enacted legislation entitled the Tennessee Eligibility
Verification for Entitlements Act (EVEA), which became effective on October 1, 2012 (Tennessee
Public Chapter No. 1061-SB No. 1325). As a result of this legislation, all state public
institutions of higher education in Tennessee must verify that students who receive state public
benefits are U.S. citizens or lawfully present in the United States. In order to verify
eligibility for benefits such as in-state tuition or graduate assistantships, students may
have to provide documentation such as a scanned copy of a driver’s license, birth certificate,
visa, or permanent resident identification.
