Brown University to expand financial aid options for undocumented students
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Brown University is soon to consider undergraduate applicants with undocumented or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status who graduate from a U.S. high school as if they were American citizens or permanent residents, the university has announced.
The change, part of a growing movement at universities and colleges nationwide, begins with the class that will enter in the fall of 2017. Like other applicants, this group will be considered under Brown’s need-blind admission policy, with the school agreeing to meet 100 percent of each student’s financial need upon enrolling.
“We seek to ensure that undocumented and DACA-status students who have been raised and educated in this country and apply for admission to Brown are treated fairly and equitably,” said Brown University Provost Richard M. Locke. “This approach is consistent with our core values and with Brown’s commitment to advancing knowledge and discovery by attracting and supporting the most talented and promising students and scholars to campus.”
