In-State Tuition and Fees Benefit

DACA students are eligible for in-state tuition and costs. Submit the following documents:

  • C-33 work permit (Employment Authorization Documentation)

Paying for College

Undocumented and DACA students are not eligible to apply for state, federal, or institutional financial aid. We encourage you to review the NECC payment options and apply for NECC scholarships.

As a DACA student, you are eligible for tuition credit if you’ve received the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship.

Read the Massachusetts Commissioner of Higher Education’s statement on DACA student status.
