Privately funded assistance is available on a limited basis for non-citizens who are undocumented and having difficulty paying their tuition. If you are undocumented and need assistance with your tuition and residence hall payments, we invite you to complete the 2018-19 Undocumented Student Financial Aid Application.
In addition to tuition assistance, students with a work-eligible status such as DACA are eligible for jobs on campus. Information about student employment is available at Handshake.
