University of California Statement of Principles in Support of Undocumented Members of the UC Community
The University of California welcomes and supports students without regard to their immigration status. UC will continue to admit students in a manner consistent with our nondiscrimination policy and without regard to a student’s race, color, national origin, religion, citizenship or other protected characteristic. In other words, undocumented applicants with or without DACA status will be considered for admission on the same basis as any U.S. citizen or other applicant. The University is committed to creating an environment in which all admitted students can successfully matriculate and graduate. Federal law protects student privacy rights, and the California Constitution and statutes provide broad privacy protection to all members of the UC community. University policy provides additional privacy protections. When the University receives requests for information that implicate individual privacy rights, the University will continue its practice of working closely with the Office of General Counsel to protect the privacy of members of the UC community. We will not release immigration status or related information in confidential student records, without permission from a student, to federal agencies or other parties without a judicial warrant, a subpoena, a court order or as otherwise required by law.

Support for our Undocumented Community following DACA Rescission (9/5/17)
We want to acknowledge that since the election, you and your family may have been impacted by the political climate in very real ways. That has been intensified by all the news this past week regarding DACA and its future. It is believed that news about what will happen to DACA will be delivered tomorrow and we cannot imagine what you are going through. However, please know that our commitment to the undocumented community is vigorous. We stand with and for you. We see you. We will do everything we can to support you and your families.
