• FAFSA & Immigrant Families

    DACA Students

    1. DACA students can use their SSN to complete FAFSA
    2. Important to not misrepresent your status & should select “No, I am not a US citizen or eligible non-citizen.”
    3. Students will receive a rejection letter because they do not qualify for aid. But can still use your EFC to show need for scholarships. 

    Undocumented Students

    1. It is not recommended that Undocumented students fill out the FAFSA. Undocumented students should not submit anything to FAFSA regarding their status.
    2. “Need” for scholarships can be determined through alternative ways. For example, FAFSA4Caster.

    Students with Undocumented Parents/Guardians

    The following steps apply only to students who are eligible to receive federal financial aid (e.g. U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents).
