Financial Aid Resources for Undocumented and DACA-mented Students
Milan Institute accepts Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students!
At the Milan Institute, we believe education is empowering. Access to quality education is a fundamental right that should be available to everyone – regardless of your background or circumstances – and we are committed to providing career training programs that empower students to gain the education and training you desire. Milan Institute is dedicated to helping DACA students achieve your educational and career goals.
Milan Institute recognizes the potential and talent within DACA students and our goal is to provide you with the necessary resources to continue your education. Through our career training programs, language assistance, and expanded financing options, we are actively working to reduce any obstacles faced by DACA students.
DACA Student Services at the Milan Institute Include:
- Language Assistance: Learning a new language can be a daunting task, especially when English is not your first language. In order to assist students in overcoming language barriers, Milan Institute provides translation devices, which can enable students to fully participate in classes, engage with instructors, and grasp course material effectively.
- Expanded Financing Options: Financing one’s education is often a concern for students, particularly those who may not qualify for traditional financing such as Federal Financial Aid and grants. In order to reduce financial barriers for DACA students, Milan Institute has introduced additional financing options including 0% in-house student loans* with flexible terms. DACA students are also eligible to apply for Milan’s DACA scholarship; scholarship recipients receive awards ranging between $500 and $1000, depending on the program.
*Zero Percent Financing Available For Those Who Qualify
