Undocumented Students

At UW Study Abroad we welcome and support DACA students to participate in study abroad programs.  In partnership with Leadership Without Borders and Student Legal Services we offer guidance and assist students in the process of finding programs that would require Advance Parole.

Though UW Study Abroad cannot give legal advice or confirm if a student will be approved for Advance Parole we do recommend UW Seattle & UW Bothell students set-up free consultations with UW Student Legal Services.  It is important to discuss the risks and rewards in applying for Advance Parole prior to making a decision about studying abroad.

Additionally, we can provide helpful information as well as other campus & community contacts to assist students in their applications.  Our staff and advisors at UW Study Abroad along with our campus partners can work with students to create a timeline that will help you determine how far in advance you need to submit your application.
