There are an estimated 65,000 undocumented students — children born abroad who are not U.S. citizens or legal residents — who graduate from U.S. high schools each year. These children are guaranteed an education in U.S. public schools through grade 12, but may face legal and financial barriers to higher education. What can you tell undocumented students about their options for college?

    Undocumented students must start their college search early not only to identify colleges that accept undocumented students but also understand the requirements and process as they differ from school to school. Many colleges do not offer or have limited financial funds to support undocumented students, but don't give up, keep looking. There is a college out there for you.
