DACA/Undocumented Advising & Support

As university leadership has affirmed, William & Mary has an enduring commitment to all of its students.

We admit students to W&M without regard for their immigration status. Our community will continue to do all it can to support our DACA students, including assisting them in accessing all available financial resources and navigating any renewal processes. - July 21, 2021
