Your safety is very important to the Stanford community
Stanford has actively supported the DREAM Act legislation since its introduction in 2001, which would enable undocumented students to continue their education and apply for citizenship. The university also supports DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which has allowed undocumented individuals who entered the United States as children to remain in the country without fear of deportation. (We do not, however, require undergraduates to have DACA status to enroll or receive financial aid.)
