DACA and Undocumented Students
While federal financial aid protocols impact undocumented students, DACA or undocumented students may apply for Bard College institutional financial aid using either the CSS Profile or the International Student Application for Financial Aid.
Most students living in the U.S. find that the International Student Aid Application does not fit them well, and choose to complete the CSS Profile instead. The Office of Financial Aid encourages each student to review both forms and complete whatever form seems most relevant to their individual circumstance. Both forms allow the student to provide additional narrative explaining any unique circumstances.
