Resources for DACA Students at Manor College

The mission of Manor College states that we believe in a commitment to a peaceful world and encourage students to fully develop as individuals through an understanding of scientific, humanistic and ethical principles, while forming a global vision.  In tandem with our mission, Manor College is committed to appropriately supporting DACA students.

Manor College President Jonathan Peri, with other Catholic college and university presidents, signed the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities’ statement supporting DACA students.  Through this signing, Manor College affirms support for DACA students.

DACA students are not eligible for federal financial aid, so they will not need to fill out the FAFSA.  However, once they apply to the College, they may be eligible for institutional aid. The Financial Aid Counselors at Manor College will discuss eligibility for institutional aid.  Admissions and Financial Aid Counselors work with each student individually, endeavoring to ensure students receive maximum support.
