Does your institution admit undocumented students?
Do you feel that your institution creates a welcoming and inclusive environment where undocumented students would feel wanted and valued on campus?
When completing the question on the application regarding citizenship, is there an option to select “non-citizen” or “other” and if not, should they leave the question blank? Is a blank field permitted when completing an online application?
Yes, we offer three different applications and they can select one of those options depending on which application they select to submit.
Do you recommend that undocumented students disclose their immigration status in the application, including essays or counselor/teacher recommendations?
If they wish to disclose this information, we encourage them to do so.
For residency and tuition purposes, how does your institution treat undocumented students? (i.e., international, in-state, out-of-state, etc.)
DACA recipients receive special consideration and are considered to be domestic applicants. They are considered for both merit- and need-based financial aid.
Does your institution offer institutional aid or any type of merit/talent scholarships to undocumented students?
How would an undocumented student apply for need-based aid at your institution? Are they required to complete a CSS Profile or an institutional financial aid application?
Students must complete the CSS Profile.
Do you require that students submit a social security number on your admissions application? Can students use zeros to complete this requirement? (i.e., 000-00-0000)
