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
- DACA Renewal Fee: SES can support the $495 DACA renewal fee for Northwestern students, both undergraduate and graduate.
- Legal Support: If you are in need of legal support due to the Trump administration’s various travel bans and/or changes to the DACA program, SES can connect you with legal support through our Office of General Counsel.
- Joining AUC: The Advancement for the Undocumented Community at Northwestern (AUC) is a Northwestern student group that supports and provides resources for the undocumented/DACA community.
Please complete the SES Interest Form to connect with an SES staff member who can provide more information about any of the above support.
