Immigration Resources

Resources for Faculty, Staff and Students Not on Visas Issued by MassArt* Including DACA and Undocumented Students

MassArt is committed to providing our community members with a safe and supportive environment. We have developed a strong partnership between various offices, such as Admissions, the International Education Center, Student Development, Counseling and Wellness, the Office of Justice, Equity, and Transformation, and the Academic Resource Center, to provide both internal support and external resources.

MassArt is dedicated to welcoming all students without discrimination, and strongly encourages all students  to apply to MassArt. Applicants applying to MassArt should also apply for FAFSA. When applying, please follow appropriate instructions regarding citizenship and residency in order to qualify for the proper tuition rate if admitted.

For specific situations, students are encouraged to make their own decisions based on the particulars of their personal status and we always recommend consulting an immigration attorney (Massachusetts Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service). Please see our page on the Executive Order on Immigration for more information and an extensive resource list, including links and resources for DACA and undocumented students.

Travel for DACA, TPS, Asylees, undocumented and non U.S. passport holders from the six Executive Order Travel ban (Iran, Lybia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen) countries are advised against travel outside of the U.S. Consult an immigration attorney before any departure from the U.S.
