At Stanford, all students, regardless of immigration status, are unconditionally welcomed and play an integral role in our community. We constantly strive and work to improve the resources for our undocumented and DACAmented students to have an equitable and successful education.

Additional Information

  • Parents of Stanford DACAmented/Undocumented Students. Your child has an abundance of support and opportunities awaiting them here, and we hope you take comfort in knowing that Stanford is taking leaps to ensure all spaces on our campus are welcome for all. Two websites to that have general Information include this one for current undergraduate students' families  and this one for prospective undergraduate students’ families. 
  • Spouses and Children of Stanford Students. If you are the spouse, domestic partner, or child of a Stanford student and you identify as undocumented or DACAmented, Stanford resources are limited and may be dependent on your spouse/partner/parent’s status. For insight on these particularities, please have the Stanford student email us so that we can connect with you or check out this useful website where you can locate nonprofit immigrant advocacy organizations by zip code.
  • Mixed-Status Families. If you as a Stanford student are not directly undocumented or DACAmented, but come from a mixed-status family where your siblings or parents fall under this category, unfortunately resources are limited as to what Stanford can provide. However, please email us and we can try to connect you with resources.
