Stanford, a prestigious university located near San Francisco in California, is another private university that publicly stated they consider undocumented students as domestic students in the admissions process. According to their press release, “Stanford treats undocumented students as domestic students in the admission process, assessing their applications under the same need-blind admission policy it uses for citizens of the United States. Stanford uses institutional funds to meet the full financial need of those undocumented students who are admitted.” For more information, please see this press release about the university’s policies for undocumented students. And add Stanford to the growing list of 16 private colleges and universities that accept undocumented students as domestic students!
