Pennsylvania State University

1. Are Dreamers allowed to apply for admission to your university?

YES, WE DO NOT BLOCK THE ENROLLMENT OF ANY STUDENT BASED ON IMMIGRATION STATUS. OBVIOUSLY YOU MAY NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR CERTAIN BENEFITS SUCH AS A GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIP UNLESS YOU HAVE AN EAD BASED ON YOUR DACA STATUS. DREAMERS ARE CONSIDERED ‘INTERNATIONAL’ STUDENTS.

I CANNOT ANSWER THE QUESTION ABOUT ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY EXCEPT TO SAY THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS SUCH AS OBTAINING A DEGREE FROM AN ENGLISH-SPEAKING INSTITUTION.

> 2. Is in-state tuition available for Dreamers?

CURRENTLY, NO. HOWEVER, IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT IT IS UNDER DISCUSSION BUT I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN A DECISION WILL BE MADE. I ALSO DON’T KNOW WHO IS IN THESE DISCUSSIONS – THE INSTITUTION, THE STATE, BOARD OF TRUSTEES???????

3. Are Dreamers available for teaching and/or research assistant-ships?

IF YOU HAVE APPLIED FOR DACA BENEFITS AND HAVE AN EAD AUTHORIZING EMPLOYMENT, YOU CAN. OTHERWISE, I CAN’T IMAGINE HOW IN ANY STATE YOU WOULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR EMPLOYMENT.

4. Does your university have any point of contact for Dreamers?

NOT THAT I AM AWARE OF. I SUPPOSE THIS OFFICE FOR DISCUSSION OF IMMIGRATION/EMPLOYMENT ELIGIBILITY. THE STUDENT AID OFFICE FOR FINANCIAL AID BENEFITS. ADMISSIONS FOR ADMISSIONS.
