College Success

There are two myths at the center of undocumented students’ pursuit of higher education: 1) undocumented students can’t go to college, and 2) there are no financial aid options for students who are undocumented or have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Conexión Américas is committed to providing accurate and timely information and resources on how to support students’ higher education aspirations regardless of their documentation status. We have put together resources and information pages for educators, students, and families to learn more about the options available in higher education for undocumented and DACA students in Tennessee.

For downloadable resources, including an interactive map that shows all of the institutions that provide financial support for undocumented and DACA students, please visit:
