Undergraduate Admission

Yes. We accept applications from undocumented students.

Brown University will consider first-time, first-year undergraduate applicants who hold undocumented or DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) status and graduate from a U.S. high school as if they were U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

Like first-time, first-year domestic students, undocumented and DACA applicants will be considered under the University's need-blind admission policy.  Brown will meet 100 percent of each student's demonstrated financial need upon matriculation.

US Citizens and Permanent Residents whose parents are undocumented are eligible for financial aid consideration. The student’s financial aid award will be based on parents’ documented income and assets.
