On June 15, 2012, the Obama Administration implemented the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which granted lawful presence and employment authorization in the U.S. to certain individuals. 

The residency status for DACA students is evaluated individually and takes into account all applicable laws. Individuals who are undocumented (do not have lawful immigration status) and do not have DACA are not eligible tuition assistance unless they were enrolled on or before July 1, 2011 (see Indiana Code 21-14-11-1). Neither undocumented nor DACA students are eligible for IU institutional scholarships or financial aid.

IU will counsel students about and connect students to available resources for educational and living expenses for which they are legally eligible.

In addition, an article by Angela Adams, Associate General Counsel at IU, provides guidance on how to advise DACA students about affording college.
