Undocumented or DACA-mented students can go to college.
Oregon law protects your information and immigration status. Colleges will not share your status with federal authorities.
How to apply for college as an undocumented student
Eligible undocumented and DACA-mented students can apply to public colleges in Oregon as a regular student. But you may need to apply as an international student at a private college.
Do your research before planning your educational and career path. Some careers require professional licenses that may be difficult to get for undocumented students. For example, cosmetology and barbering licenses in Oregon require two forms of identification, most of which require citizenship or permanent residency.
Resources for undocumented students at Oregon colleges
Many colleges in Oregon have information and support programs just for undocumented and DACA-mented students.
