Clark welcomes all applicants regardless of citizenship status. Undocumented students, with or without Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), are treated the same as other U.S. citizens or permanent residents in Clark’s admissions process.
Check out the Statement of Support from the University administration and from student leaders for undocumented/DACA students.
While procedures for financial aid vary between domestic and international applicants, undocumented students are considered for domestic financial aid like other U.S. citizens or permanent residents, with the exception of federal funding sources.
Applying for admission
Undocumented students should follow the same application procedure for all domestic (not international) applicants to Clark. While federal financial aid is not available, undocumented students may be eligible for merit scholarships and some sources of institutional aid provided by the University. A FAFSA is not required to apply for aid.
Applying for financial aid
- Complete the CSS Profile. Check the College Board for information on fee waivers.
- If you are a student with DACA status, you can submit a FAFSA to receive a Student Aid Report (SAR), if desired. However, this is not necessary for Clark financial aid.
