Rice University treasures our diversity in all its dimensions and welcomes all members of our community. Our primary mission is the education of people to help them realize their ambitions and potential, and to make the greatest contribution they can to our city, country and world. We seek to extend that mission to all highly talented students, regardless of national origin.
These values will continue to guide us as we seek to support DACA, undocumented, and other resident immigrant students. We will work to assure that these students are able to pursue the full range of opportunities offered at Rice and beyond. As President Leebron wrote in 2016, "We want to be clear that all of our students — whether citizens or not, whether born in the U.S. or not, whether recognized as immigrants or not — are a cherished part of our community, and we will always work to assure their ability to complete their studies and pursue their dreams."
The tabs on the top of this page link to a variety of resources for undocumented and DACAmented students, including FAQs that provide information and guidance on a number of important topics.
