Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Michigan State University is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. That includes our commitment to admit and support students from all backgrounds, adhering to our values of being a campus that is diverse, equitable and free from discrimination.

We are aware undocumented students, refugees and recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as well as students, staff and faculty with mixed-immigration status often face barriers and challenges as they navigate campus policies requiring support services to address their unique needs. To assist, multiple units across campus are working together to increase institutional support for these students as well as provide training and advising related to admissions, financial aid, and residency reclassification.

We encourage all units to visit https://undocumented.msu.edu for more information and frequently asked questions.

This website reflects our commitment to MSU students, faculty and staff and provides information that may be useful to current and prospective students and their families, as well as other members of the campus community.
