Tip Sheet for Undocumented Students
**Download the “DACA Scholars” App for more free resources

There is a lot of misinformation around undocumented students and higher education. Most importantly, students should know that undocumented students, with and without Deferred Action for Children Arrivals (DACA) can attend college in Utah! All students, regardless of immigration status, are eligible for admission into any of accredited college or university (public and private) in Utah.

College credits in high school
Undocumented students, with and without DACA, can participate in Concurrent Enrollment, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate classes while in high school. Earning college credits while still in high school can help students save time and money once they do get to college.
Scholarships

While citizenship is a requirement to receive state and federal aid, Utah high school graduates do not need to provide proof of citizenship to qualify for privately funded scholarships. For a comprehensive list of privately funded scholarships in Utah visit Edúcate Utah.

Utah State University’s undocumented student page and the University of Utah’s Dream Center both include a list of scholarships for undocumented, DACA, and non-FAFSA eligible students.

In-state tuition waiver

Utah state law allows qualifying undocumented and DACAmented high school graduates to pay in-state tuition rates if they attend a Utah public college or university. To learn more about qualifications visit Edúcate Utah or see page 43 in the college guide (available in English and Spanish).

Additional support and information

Edúcate Utah is a comprehensive guide to higher education for undocumented students in Utah.

This UtahFutures handout breaks down the laws around undocumented students and their rights; it also includes a list of local and national scholarships. For help navigating the admissions process at 11 Utah institutions, this handout includes names and contact information, as well as website info and links to the forms undocumented students will need.

Regardless of which college a student plans to attend, the University of Utah Dream Center has important information for undocumented students.

Below is a list of online undocumented resources offered at the other public colleges and universities in Utah.

The Affordable Colleges website offers expert advice and resources for undocumented students, including a list of tuition policies by state and scholarships for undocumented students.

We’ve also gathered a list of resources specifically for Hispanic/Latinx students. You can view those here.
