Admissions policies for Undocumented and DACA Students: Wellesley accepts applications from undocumented and DACA students.

For financial aid purposes, Wellesley considers undocumented and DACA students as international citizens, which means financial assistance is available for a limited number of undocumented and DACA students.

However, Wellesley is committed to meeting 100 percent of calculated need for all admitted undocumented and DACA students who apply for financial aid during the admission process. Admitted undocumented and DACA students will receive financial assistance in the form of grant aid. Students will not be expected to borrow funds (via a student loan) as part of their aid packages. Students who are ineligible to work in the United States will receive grant aid in place of the typical school year work-study expectation and summer work earnings expectations.
