Welcome

Northwestern University welcomes students who have DACA status, are undocumented, or have undocumented family members to our diverse educational community. We are committed to providing support for all of our students so that they may focus on the pursuit of their education while at Northwestern. The university recognizes the unique barriers that these students and their families may encounter in pursuing a college education, and Northwestern strives to work toward ensuring our students successfully navigate the university experience.

The Office of Student Enrichment Services (SES) oversees the coordination of resources and services available for students who have DACA status, are undocumented, or have undocumented family members.

Support for Undocumented/DACA Students

"Let's Talk" provides a supportive space for students to share personal or loved ones' stories about their undocumented status. "Let's Talk" takes place, weekly, on Wednesdays from 2-4 pm in the Multicultural Center (MCC, 1936 Sheridan).  For more information, visit the "Let's Talk" website.
