At My Undocumented Life, we have compiled important information & resources about navigating high school while undocumented and preparing for life after graduation!

Navigating High School: Hear from fellow undocumented students about how they made the most of their high school experience and overcame challenges, including advice on how to find support as an undocumented student, how to disclose one’s status to teachers/counselors, and much more.

Life After High School: It can be stressful to think about life after high school, especially while balancing family, work, and school responsibilities. Here you can find key resources to help you find work, secure an internship, or apply to college as an undocumented student.

Life With DACA: Learn about what DACA is, how to apply for it, the renewal process, and benefits of having DACA.

Applying to College: Whether you’re in your first year of high school or last, it’s never too early/late to apply to college. Check out these resources to help you navigate the college application process as an undocumented student.

College Spotlight: As you look for colleges to apply to we know that it is helpful to know which schools support undocumented students.  That is why we have put together posts of colleges that support undocumented students, the resources/services they provide, and where to find more information.

Scholarships: Check out these scholarship opportunities that are open to undocumented high school students. For scholarships with approaching deadlines, check out this page.

Immigration News: The political landscape is constantly changing. Check out this page to stay up-to-date with the latest immigration-related news and policies.

Get Involved: Whether you are looking for ways to support community efforts, considering becoming an organizer, or already a leader in your community, here are resources to help you stay connected and up-to-date, including news about upcoming events, webinars, and more.
