City Colleges seeks to foster a welcoming environment for all students, regardless of immigration status. Numerous initiatives, both within the institution and in partnership with immigrant-serving allies, work to ensure City Colleges of Chicago responds to new immigration policies affecting our students so they may be prepared to pursue their life’s goals.
Undocumented students looking for ways to finance their education have multiple options. They can:
- Visit the Financial Aid Office at his or her college to discuss possible options.
- Find scholarships offered through the City Colleges of Chicago Foundation
- Apply for the Chicago Star Scholarship -- which offers qualifying students up to three years of education to pursue an associate degree at no cost, offering full tuition and book waivers. Undocumented students are eligible for the Chicago Star Scholarship.
