Brown University will treat first-time, first-year undocumented or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) status applicants in the same manner as domestic applicants.
“We seek to ensure
that undocumented and DACA-status students who have been raised and educated in
this country and apply for admission to Brown are treated fairly and
equitably,” Brown University Provost Richard Locke said. “This approach is
consistent with our core values and with Brown’s commitment to advancing
knowledge and discovery by attracting and supporting the most talented and
promising students and scholars to campus.”
This decision sees
Brown join a growing number of universities treating undocumented and DACA
students the same as domestic applicants during admissions. First-time,
first-year undocumented students and DACA students will now fall under Brown’s
need-blind admission policy, as opposed to the need-aware process that applies
to international and transfer students.
background, country of origin or citizenship status, Brown aims to prepare
every student for a productive, purposeful and fulfilling life after college,” Dean Maud Mandel said. “These modifications will help us to achieve our goals
of ensuring that every student can benefit from a Brown education and contribute
fully as active and engaged members of the community.”
