Undocumented and DACA Resources

This guide provides resources aimed at undocumented and DACA recipients of the Champaign-Urbana community.


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 support undocumented and DACA students. 

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

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.
