Everyone needs a support network. Connect with your school counselor, advisor, or teacher for educational opportunities. Remember that counselors, school faculty and staff cannot legally disclose any information, including immigration status.

If you are currently a high school undocumented student or high school graduate who have not attended a college or university, you can start planning now!

If you are a high school student graduate who has attended another college or university and received college credit courses since graduating, you can review the transfer guide, college and program requirements, or undergraduate FAQs for more information about the application process.

Have you been accepted to UIC? Congratulations! If you need help funding your education please visit our “Scholarships” page for more information.

Remember to ask for help from your teachers, school counselors, and allies.
