Leadership Without Borders


We are proud to be a University that wholeheartedly welcomes and supports undocumented students. Leadership Without Borders is committed to providing you with all the resources and guidance you need to prepare for college, have a successful UW experience, and be ready for your next steps beyond college.

Planning is essential, even more so for undocumented students. Whether you are beginning to plan for or are already in college, you will find a variety of useful resources and information throughout this website that will help you to prepare for your next steps. We invite you to explore:

  • Learn the essential steps you have to take to prepare for applying to UW or pursuing other postsecondary pathways.
  • Discover the resources and support we offer to undocumented students at UW.
  • Opportunities for undocumented students interested in pursuing graduate school and/or preparing to launch their career.

The University of Washington is driven by our public promise — a promise to our state and the next generation to do all that we can to make the world a better place. At the core of that promise is our deep commitment to access, equal opportunity and social justice. For this reason, we are deeply committed to supporting all our undocumented students as they prepare to begin their journey as undergraduate students, throughout their time at our university, and beyond.
