ATLANTA - The University System of Georgia is requiring colleges to verify that no illegal immigrant students are paying in-state tuition or getting financial aid.

The state's 35 public colleges and universities have two months to sift through more than 300,000 students. No estimate has been given yet for how much the project will cost.

The move stems from the discovery that Kennesaw State University student was living in the country illegally but paying in-state tuition. That violates a 2006 policy set by Chancellor Erroll Davis that prohibits campuses from giving taxpayer-subsidized tuition rates to undocumented students.

Out-of-state tuition is about three times what in-state students pay.
