As colleges and universities transition to online services, it is vital that all students are able to access accurate information regarding their admissions, financial aid, and available services—especially undocumented students who have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
With the lack of in-person support, too many current and incoming undocumented students face challenges in obtaining the information they need from their campus websites. These resources are critical for them to successfully stay enrolled, get the financial aid for which they are eligible, meet requirements for in-state tuition and/or access important services.
Immigrant Rising’s new guide Strengthening Your Campus Website for Undocumented Students: A Guide for California Colleges and Universities helps you identify gaps your campus faces in effectively serving this population. It includes key elements and resources that should be incorporated into admissions, financial aid, and undocumented student webpages.
