At this time, undoc­u­ment­ed and Deferred Action for Child­hood Arrival (DACA) stu­dents do not qual­i­fy for in-state tuition at pub­lic col­leges, uni­ver­si­ties and com­mu­ni­ty col­leges in Ten­nessee. While they are able to enroll in pub­lic col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties, they must pay out-of-state tuition which is often three times the price of in-state tuition.

Pri­vate insti­tu­tions offer one rate for all stu­dents, and some are able to provide some insti­tu­tion­al finan­cial aid for undoc­u­ment­ed and DACA stu­dents.

The map below shows pri­vate insti­tu­tions across the state of Ten­nessee that provide insti­tu­tion­al finan­cial aid sup­port for stu­dents who are undoc­u­ment­ed or have received DACA. Please note that while there are insti­tu­tions that provide finan­cial sup­port, the­se only cov­er a share of the cost to attend. Undoc­u­ment­ed and DACA stu­dents must still seek pri­vate schol­ar­ships to cov­er their remain­ing need.
