Undocumented and DACA students
Haverford welcomes undocu+ students to apply to Haverford through the QuestBridge Match, Early Decision, Regular Decision, and Transfer application processes.
We use the term undocu+ at Haverford to encompass the many facets of this population, including students who are undocumented themselves, those whose parents or other family members are undocumented, or students who have DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Undocu+ students are read within the context of their high schools and considered domestic students in our admission and financial aid processes. We meet the full demonstrated need of all admitted students, including undocu+ students.
We ask that undocu+ students applying for financial aid fill out the CSS Profile (this form is filled out by all students applying for financial aid who identify as US citizens, permanent residents or undocu+ students).
Because undocu+ students are not eligible for federal financial aid, we ask that you please do not fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
We are committed to not only fully supporting students throughout the admission process, but also during their four years on campus.
If you have any questions about admission, please contact kabels [at] haverford.edu (Kathleen Abels). If you have any questions about the financial aid process, please email finaid [at] haverford.edu. If you have questions about support for undocu+ students on campus, please reach out to cmrose [at] haverford.edu (Christina Rose), Director of the Chesick Scholars program.
Come Have-A-Look for yourself—join us for one of our fall on-campus programs!
If you are not able to come to one of these programs, you can still interview (either on-campus or closer to home). And feel free to reach out to us anytime with questions—we would love to hear from you.
