Undocumented Student Information

ACA has changed, be informed and visit the USCIS website for information.

Important Notice: College of DuPage is committed to education. DACA students will be able to continue their education at College of DuPage. Undocumented students have always been welcomed and we will continue to assist all persons regardless of their race, color, religion or creed, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, sexual orientation, arrest record, military status or unfavorable discharge from military service, citizenship status or other factors.

If you are a student that qualifies under DACA or Illinois House Bill 60 you will be charged the International student fee unless you fill this form and submit prior to registration. Click here for the form: Appeal Form

Each line has a link, click on it and it will open in a new window with that specific scholarship or resource information.
