DACA and Undocumented Students

At Purdue University Northwest, we are dedicated to the success of our students.

We offer a wide range of resources for DACA and undocumented students to ensure that students are provided with assistance on their path to a degree.



  • DACA students are eligible for in-state tuition (Indiana Resident).
  • Undocumented students pay the same rates as out-of-state students (Non-Resident).
