Financial Resources for Undocumented Students

Oregon Financial Aid Opportunities

Undocumented and DACA students in Oregon are eligible for the following state financial aid programs, as long as they meet all other program requirements. As part of the application process for these programs, you must complete the Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA). The ORSAA is an alternative to the FAFSA for undocumented Oregon students, including students who have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status or Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Opens in October.
