At Columbia College Chicago, we are proud to support undocumented students in their educational and professional pursuits. A diverse, inclusive, and equitable community is foundational to our values at Columbia, and we admit students regardless of their citizenship or immigration status. We believe any student who decides to enroll at Columbia should have the necessary support and resources available to them on their path to graduation.
When institutions like Columbia step up to support those who are undocumented or DACAmented—just as we support all other students—our college, our city, our country, and our world all benefit. Columbia’s students are the next generation to write the culture and make the rules, and our community wholeheartedly supports the future successes of all young creatives.
We've prepared this webpage as a guide to find information and resources for undocumented students and those supporting them in their college search process, and we do hope it is helpful.
