Undocumented and DACA Students

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

To apply for need based financial aid from the College, an applicant who identifies herself as an undocumented or DACA status student should follow the application requirements, with the exception of filing the FAFSA, according to her application plan:

First Year
Transfer
Frances Perkins (Nontraditional Age)
Current Student 

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