Undocumented Students

Educational institutions in the United States, unless restricted by their state law, are permitted to admit and enroll all qualified students, regardless of their immigration status. If admitted to the University of Rochester, undocumented students may accept merit-based scholarships and awards that are not service-based. Additionally, some students may have secured employment authorization under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and may, therefore, be eligible to work during their program as a full-time student. 

While not technically on a UR-sponsored, ISO-administered visa program, undocumented students are welcome to visit the ISO and meet with an advisor to discuss their situation and how best to achieve their academic goals and take advantage of the many UR and community resources available to them.
