California is home to 40 percent of these students, the majority of whom face enormous barriers to their success in school and beyond, including poverty, discrimination, and a legal system that is stacked against them.
UC Berkeley’s Undocumented Student Program (USP) — a component of the Centers for Educational Equity and Excellence — provides guidance and support to undocumented undergraduates at Cal.
USP practices a holistic, multicultural and solution-focused approach that delivers individualized service for each student. The academic counseling, legal support, financial aid resources and extensive campus referral network provided by USP helps students develop the unique gifts and talents they each bring to the university, while empowering a sense of belonging. The program’s mission is to support the advancement of undocumented students within higher education and promote pathways for engaged scholarship.
This guide was designed designed to empower undocumented students and educator allies from across the United States (California in particular) to work with their institutions to increase resources and support systems available.
