As we work to increase access to a college education for undocumented students, we would like to clarify that there are no laws that prohibit students from attending college based on immigration status. Additionally, many colleges and universities in Michigan do grant in-state tuition to undocumented and DACA students. The Undocumented Student Guide to College in Michigan 2019 is designed to help those students and their families by providing resources available for undocumented students interested in pursuing education after high school, regardless of citizenship status.
The University of Michigan encourages the application and enrollment of undocumented students – as well as students who receive benefits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program – who are academically excellent and accomplished in extracurricular endeavors.
