Undocumented Students

Welcome to the ASCC undocumented student resource page, dedicated to providing education and employment resources for undocumented college students. We understand there are unique challenges you face in pursuing your academic and career goals and want to connect you with the resources and opportunities you need to succeed. We believe in your potential, and we are committed to helping you achieve great things.

Employment options:

If you do not have DACA or are waiting for the Supreme Court’s decision, there are alternative employment options available. These include accepting an internship without pay and finding other forms of financial support, working as an independent contractor, using an Independent Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), or starting your own business as a member of a Limited Liability Company (LLC).
