Undocumented and DACA Applicants 

Wesleyan has a history and tradition of welcoming students from all backgrounds. With inclusion and equal opportunity as two of our most essential values, we welcome all undergraduate applicants regardless of citizenship status. If you are an undocumented student graduating from a U.S. high school with or without Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and you apply to Wesleyan, you will be considered in the same process and manner as any domestic U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident student in your high school.



Students can apply using the Common Application, a QuestBridge application (in either the College Match process or as a Regular or Early Decision candidate), or Scoir.

Financial Aid

Wesleyan meets 100% of the demonstrated financial need of all admitted students who apply for financial aid during the admission process. As an undocumented student, you will be considered for need-based financial aid like any U.S. citizen or permanent resident applicant. Because federal financial aid is not available for undocumented students, Wesleyan’s institutional funding is used in the place of federal funding.

The financial aid process for undocumented students is like the process for U.S. citizens and permanent residents; however, the federal government’s FAFSA application is waived (not required).
