Advisement about Affording College for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Students:
Some colleges may offer institution-specific scholarships for which DACA recipients may qualify. Colleges may require students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) solely for the purpose of determining private aid eligibility. The student must have a Social Security number to complete the FAFSA online. The FAFSA will result in a Student Aid Report bearing the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) that the school needs to determine financial need. However, the DACA recipient will not be eligible for federal student aid and will receive a “C” code on the Student Aid Report requesting documentation of citizenship. Students who do not have Social Security numbers may be asked to submit the paper FAFSA to the financial aid office for a manual calculation of the EFC. All information submitted on the FAFSA, whether online or on paper, must be completely accurate.
DACA students do not qualify for Federal Student Aid; however other Non-Citizen students may be eligible. Go to this link for more information on Federal Aid eligibility: http://studentaid.ed.gov/eligibility/non-us-citizens
