The Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration (the Presidents’ Alliance), in partnership with Research for Action, published a fact sheet, Postsecondary Education and Undocumented Students, that examines how College Promise programs can help advance affordability, access, and success for undocumented students. The fact sheet demonstrates how Promise programs, which typically offer funding to cover at least tuition costs after all other gift aid is applied, are an underused avenue of support for undocumented students and could provide an affordable pathway to a postsecondary degree. The fact sheet also includes practical considerations for state policymakers, practitioners, advocates, and other stakeholders.

This resource includes information regarding the following barriers and recommendations to overcome them:

  • Barriers to affordability,
  • Barriers to access,
  • Barriers to success.
