As one of Wisconsin’s most diverse colleges, Alverno embraces, fosters and celebrates the power of inclusivity, underpinned by our heritage as a Catholic, Franciscan college. We have an inherent belief in the worth and dignity of all human beings.
In January 2017, Alverno President Andrea Lee, IHM, repledged her commitment to support the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and undocumented immigrant students. In November 2016, she joined more than 600 public and private college and university leaders in signing a statement supporting these students. Alverno is committed to supporting DACA and undocumented students through the unique challenges they face.
Undocumented students, including DACA recipients, are not eligible for federal financial aid, so you do not need to file the federal FAFSA. However, once your admissions application is complete, you are eligible for college aid. An Institutional Evaluation Form is your application for any additional aid from the college. Complete the form and return it to the Financial Aid Office for review. Your Alverno admissions counselor and the Financial Aid Office will work with you to determine the best financial path for your situation. If you have questions regarding this form or need help filling it out, please contact Financial Aid at 414-382-6262.
Q: As an undocumented or DACA student, am I eligible to work on campus?
