Undocumented at Stanford Information for Undocumented Members of the Stanford Community

Information on DACA:

The U.S. Supreme Court on June 18, 2020, blocked an effort to bring an immediate end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Read a message from Stanford’s president and provost on this decision.

Stanford encourages those with questions about their DACA status to seek a legal consultation specific to their individual situation. Support services for the Stanford community continue to be available for those who have questions or need assistance. See the tabs on this website for information. Resources for students also are available here.

Stanford is committed to a welcoming and supportive environment for all students, faculty, staff and scholars, and it provides services and support to them without regard to their immigration status, religion, nationality, ethnicity or other characteristics.

That commitment includes support for undocumented students. We welcome applications from all students who are ready to make the most of the extraordinary academic opportunities available at Stanford.

This website provides information and resources for current members of the Stanford community, prospective students and all others who may have questions about issues related to undocumented status.
