Undocumented Students 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
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.
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.
