DACA and Undocumented Students

Mount Holyoke College considers DACA and undocumented status students for both merit scholarships and need-based financial aid. (All applicants are automatically considered for merit scholarships with their admission application.)

An applicant who has not identified to Mount Holyoke as an undocumented or DACA status student should complete the financial aid application requirements for International applicants.

The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators provides a helpful tip sheet for undocumented students.

The staff of Student Financial Services is here to help you throughout the application process and in managing the cost of a Mount Holyoke education. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
