Resources and Support for Undocumented and DACA Individuals

The University of Illinois Urbana Champaign supports and welcomes Undocumented and DACA individuals. We hope that this guide can help individuals in numerous ways. Nothing presented in this guide is legal or medical advice and you should seek official assistance if needed. Thank you.

The goal of this guide is to provide resources and information for Undocumented and DACA students and inform others about immigration policy and what they can do to help Undocumented and DACA students. 

Thank you to La Casa, Open Illinois, and the Social Sciences, Health, and Education Library for their work and input. This guide would not have happened without them.
