Undocumented Students

CLAS welcomes and encourages undocumented students to apply to our program.

Stanford treats undocumented students as domestic students in the admission process. Read more about Stanford's statement on immigration principles.

Undocumented students are not eligible for FLAS Fellowships due to the US Department of Education Eligibility Requirements. However, undocumented students may be eligible for other funding. Please contact esaenz [at] stanford.edu (Elizabeth Sáenz-Ackermann) for more information.

If you are an undocumented student and plan to apply to our program, please apply as a domestic student, not an international applicant. If you have further questions about your immigration status, please contact sbhutani [at] stanford.edu (Shalini Bhutani), Executive Director of Bechtel International Center.
