The UC Irvine campus and the University of California system have compiled the following list of resources to help members of university community navigate the complicated and constantly changing issues regarding immigration and undocumented students. If you, your colleagues, friends or students have questions about their own status please direct them to the following sources of information. You may also wish to read the Committee for Equity and Inclusion for Undocumented Students’ statements of best practices for faculty, which is a good source of general information and guidance to help educate and equip us.


For issues related to the recent Executive Order regarding travelers from Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Libya, consult the UC Irvine International Center immigration policy resources website (which is constantly updated).

For issues related to DACA/AB540 students or DREAMers, please see the following resources:

The UCI Criminal Justice Clinic is also offering free legal representation.

Please note that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits the University from discriminating against individuals on the basis of national origin. The California Constitution prohibits the University from discriminating against or granting preferential treatment to any individual on the basis of national origin. University policy also prohibits discrimination based on national origin in student admission, access, and treatment in University programs and activities. The University’s nondiscrimination policies apply to all applicants, including those who may be undocumented immigrants.

There are several of ally and awareness training programs available to members of the campus community. Please visit for more information.
