Undocumented students cannot legally receive any federally-funded student financial aid, including loans, grants and scholarships. Although many states offer in-state tuition to unauthorized immigrant students, South Carolina is one of six states that actually bar unauthorized immigrant students from receiving in-state tuition benefits. In South Carolina, public institutions treat undocumented students as international students. What does that mean for you? You may be ineligible for state aid and in-state tuition.
However, we believe nothing should stand in your way of a college education—not the cost, your immigrant status, or the lack of financial aid.
This is why we have created the Hispanic Alliance Dreamers Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships and other support services to DACA students [who live in Greenville County/South Carolina] [who want to attend school in Greenville County/South Carolina]
