Undocumented Students

Undocumented and DACA recipient students are a vital part of our community at Albion. We seek to build a campus where every student feels they belong.

Here you’ll find answers to some of your specific concerns and the resources you need to support your success.

Admission

We invite all qualified students, regardless of immigration status, to join our living and learning community at Albion. In many ways, the admission process undocumented students follow is parallel to that of other applicants. Find out more about how to fill out your application as an undocumented or DACA student, what to do you if you’re interested in teacher education programs, and and other resources related to your college studies, life on campus and in the community.
