Lycoming College, a small private liberal arts college located in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, considers undocumented students (with and without DACA) to be domestic students instead of international students in the application process! According to their admissions office, both undocumented students with and without DACA attend Lycoming College. Lycoming College also offers institutional financial aid to undocumented students, but their financial aid is limited, so please contact their Admissions office for further information.

For more information about their admissions and financial aid policies for undocumented students, please see this page on their website or contact the Director of Admissions, Jessica A. Quintana Hess, MSED, at hess@lycoming.edu or admissions@lycoming.edu. She also speaks Spanish.
