Undocumented Students

Oakland University encourages the application and enrollment of undocumented students who are academically prepared and meet university admission criteria.

Students may apply online at oakland.edu/apply (paper applications are also available upon request). If you do not have a social security number, you may leave the field blank. For an overview of the university’s application and admission requirements, entering freshmen may visit oakland.edu/freshmen, and transfer students may visit oakland.edu/transfer.

Certain individuals may be eligible for in-state tuition rates if they graduated from an accredited Michigan high school (after attending for a minimum of three years) and are not legal residents of the United States. This eligibility extends for 40 months following high school graduation. For questions regarding our residency policy or tuition rates for undocumented students, please contact Undergraduate Admissions at (800) OAK-UNIV or oakuniv@oakland.edu.

Financial Aid, including federal, state, and many institutional aid sources, requires recipients to be U.S. citizens; therefore, funding opportunities are limited for undocumented students. Students are eligible for merit-based awards at Oakland University, provided the student meets the minimum academic requirements. Students are encouraged to use every opportunity before and during college to find internal and external scholarships to offset the cost of attendance.
