If you are an undocumented or DACA student in Tennessee and are interested in going to college, the following guides have been prepared for you with information about your options across the state.
- The information guide covers the difference between public and private colleges and universities and Tennessee, along with alternative higher education options, and state and national scholarships and resources.
- Below the guide is a one-pager on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as DACA, which is the executive action announced by President Obama that allows certain undocumented young people who qualify to receive two-year work authorization and relief from deportation. If you qualify for DACA and are interested in applying, the bottom of the one pager has references to organizations that have free DACA workshops where lawyers or volunteers can help you and your family fill out your application.
If you are interested in learning more about your options, or about applying for college, you and a teacher can request that Conexión Américas hosts an information session at your school by sending an e-mail to Jermaine Soto at Jermaine@conexionamericas.org.
