ANN ARBOR, Mich. -

The University of Michigan Board of Regents is expected to decide whether the school should offer in-state tuition to immigrants who've been living in Michigan without legal permission.
 
   The university currently charges those students out-of-state tuition, which is much higher.
 
   During their meeting Thursday in Ann Arbor, the regents are expected to vote on a proposal that was submitted earlier this month by Provost Martha Pollack.
 
   The proposal also would allow members of the military to receive in-state tuition, regardless of where they live.
 
   If approved, the policy revisions would go into effect in January.
