DACA and UnDoc

Our staff has a number of UndocuAllies familiar with the unique challenges that you may be facing as you begin to consider career options. We continually monitor the impact of governmental changes and are frequently in contact with the International Services Office (ISO) and other campus UndocuAlly partners to ensure that you are always supported. Our office can assist you in a number of areas, including:

  • Discussing career options for various industry and career interests.
  • Exploring ways to gain experience regardless of your documentation status.
  • Determining what options are available to you after graduation.
  • Providing you with a safe space to explore your ideas, determine your options and set goals that will work for you!

You can choose to disclose your documentation status with your adviser directly, and we respect those students that choose not to do so.
