blog postsInformation on University Practices and Internal and External ResourcesShare on FacebookTweetEmailAt the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, our preeminence in research, teaching and public engagement has long depended on keeping our doors wide open to the most talented students, faculty and staff from all over the United States and abroad. We recruit, embrace and support the very best regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national origin. We will be proactive in supporting all of our students, faculty, staff and visiting scholars, whether domestic or international. We will advocate for the continued access of undocumented and DACA students to full educational opportunities. We will actively advance the principles of nondiscrimination and inclusion to ensure all members of our community may pursue their educational and professional goals free from acts of intolerance and hate. As always, we will protect student and employee confidential information to the fullest extent allowed by law. While we will comply with all federal, state and local laws, we will also advocate for laws and regulations that recognize how critical immigrant students and scholars are to the excellence of our great research university and the continued world-leading achievement of the United States in science, engineering, humanities, social science and the arts. As a leading land grant university, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign remains steadfast in its mission to educate, research and engage, and thereby change the world for the better. Our success rests firmly on the principle of welcoming the best and brightest into our community, and we will vigorously advocate for actions, laws and policies that protect and advance that principle. The following information clarifies the policies and practices of the university, as well as many resources available to students. University practices Enrollment management (e.g., Admissions, Registrar, Student Financial Aid) and International Students and Scholar Services does not collect any information on a student’s DACA status. Undocumented students who qualify under state law (the Acevedo Act) are charged in-state tuition. La Casa Cultural Latina supports all undocumented/DACA students who request services; regardless if they identify as Latina/Latino or not. The University of Illinois Police Department continues to work with community and university advocates to train and guide our officers to work in a way that balances human dignity with public safety. The university protects student and employee confidential information to the fullest extent allowed by law.
