Undocumented Student Support
Huskies Supporting Huskies

The Office for Undocumented Student Support aims to engage and support undocumented and mixed-status students at NIU. The Office coordinates support, advocacy, programming assistance and referrals that support educational equity for undocumented and mixed-status students.

This year we will be accepting donations for the Immediate Assistance Fund for Undocumented Students.

The Immediate Assistance Fund provides small grants for emergency needs for undocumented students. A grant could help a student buy an expensive but mandatory textbook, pay their rent or pay for a DACA renewal fee. Huskies appreciate the assistance no matter the donation amount - all donations help!
