Emory University, a prestigious private university located in Atlanta, Georgia, will begin considering all undocumented students (with and without DACA) as domestic students instead of international students starting this Fall 2017! Since 2015, Emory had considered only students with DACA as domestic students, but this policy means they will consider all undocumented students (with and without DACA) as domestic students. According to their website, “First year undocumented students (with or without DACA) applying to Emory University (Emory College or Oxford College) should follow the application procedures of a domestic student… Emory University meets 100% of demonstrated financial need for undergraduate undocumented students (with or without DACA) who are admitted as first-year, first-degree-seeking students, and who graduated from a U.S. high school.”

This policy was established much thanks to Freedom University’s original demand since 2014, which was carried on by Freedom at Emory’s work to bring about the policy in 2015, and then Emory Sanctuary Coalition’s work from 2016 to the present!

Check out their admissions page for undocumented students as well as their financial aid page for undocumented students for more information.
