Open Illinois: Resources for Undocumented and DACA Students

Dear students, community, & colleagues,

As President Killeen said “The University of Illinois System has earned a place as a global leader in education and discovery by opening our doors wide to the most talented students – and that includes our undocumented students.” We are happy to announce that the new Open Illinois website is live. This resource website provides undocumented and DACA students information and tools that will ensure their success at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. It is meant to highlight resources, services, and provide answers to both incoming and current students.
