Undocumented & DACAmented Student Resources

Texas State Rising Star
Each year an estimated 65,000 undocumented students graduate from high schools across the United States.  Approximately 5 to 10 percent of these students enroll in college or university. Of these undocumented students who are enrolled in college, only 1 to 3 percent graduate each year.  In spite of experiencing considerable challenges related to admissions, tuition and financial aid, undocumented and DACAmented students persist and succeed.
 
Undocumented and DACAmented students are valued members of the Texas State University community. Our goal is raise awareness about the experiences, support services, and need for safe spaces for undocumented and DACAmented students  at Texas State.  Below is information on ways to get involved and stay informed.
