College Guide for Undocumented Students
An undocumented immigrant is defined as any foreign-born person who does not have a legal right to remain in the United States. According to the Pew Research Center, roughly 11 million undocumented immigrants reside in the U.S. as of 2016, representing 3.4% of the country’s total population. Undocumented students are a subset of this group and face various hardships due to their legal status, including obstacles that prevent them from receiving the same educational opportunities as U.S. citizens and legal U.S. residents.
Since 2012, roughly 790,000 undocumented immigrants have received deportation relief under the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program, which gives undocumented minors the opportunity to work and study in the United States DACA recipients, particularly those seeking higher educational opportunities, are considered Dreamers, a term stemming from the proposed Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act of 2001. This act would have streamlined the process for undocumented minors to receive conditional ― and eventually, permanent ― residency.
While the DREAM Act has repeatedly failed to pass in Congress, the push for Dreamers to receive the same educational and work opportunities as U.S. citizens remains a hot-button issue in today’s uncertain political climate. A survey from College Board found that, of the 65,000 undocumented students that graduate from high school every year in the U.S., only 5% to 10% enroll in college. This article includes some strategies for undocumented students when it comes to overcoming these educational barriers, obtaining financial aid, and earning a college degree.
