Students Who Are Undocumented

Hello Students!

The Community College of Aurora (CCA) is an open-door institution, which allows any student to attend, regardless of citizenship, and we are made up of a rich and diverse student body, including immigrants, international students, DREAMERS, those who are undocumented, those with DACA status, and those with U.S. citizenship.  We, the CCA Undocu-Serving Taskforce, welcome all of you to our beautiful community. You matter. You are valued. You belong.

Our team has been specifically trained in Undocu-Serving topics so we can better understand and support the unique needs of students who are undocumented and help in navigating college.

Created in May 2020, the Undocu-Serving Taskforce’s work aligns with CCA’s vision to be the college where every student succeeds. Our team coordinates campus efforts in providing resources, programming, and training to build a more inclusive and supportive CCA community for our students who are undocumented. Many of these resources (financial, community, and CCA) are listed on this webpage, which we will continue to update. Please help us share these informative resources with those in our community.

DACA UPDATE: The Supreme Court ruling on June 18, 2020 has effectively allowed DACA to continue for the foreseeable future. If you have questions about this ruling, please review the Community Resources listed below for your specific needs; if you are unsure which resource is appropriate, please email us at undocuserving@ccaurora.edu and we will assist you.
