Undocumented/DACA Students

Institutional assistance is available on a limited basis for non-citizens who are undocumented and having difficulty paying their tuition.  Federal and state financial aid sources require recipients to be U.S. citizens; therefore, funding opportunities are limited for undocumented students.  

Students are eligible for merit-based scholarships at Grand Valley State University, provided the student meets the minimum academic requirements; for a list of private scholarships, specifically for Grand Valley students, please visit the scholarship website. Students are encouraged to use every opportunity before and during college to find internal and external scholarships to offset the cost of attendance.


To be considered for financial assistance, you must complete an Undocumented/DACA Student Worksheet and submit the appropriate documentation.
