Abstract
Lack of lawful immigration status impacts and shapes the experiences of undocumented students at the University of California at Berkeley (U.C. Berkeley), including their path to higher education, their university experience, and their plans for the future. This study reflects the findings of a quantitative and qualitative research study conducted with undocumented students at U.C. Berkeley in 2013-2014. The study provides an understanding of the experiences and perspectives of undocumented students enrolled at the university, the
barriers they faced in reaching U.C. Berkeley, and the challenges their immigration status continues
to trigger for them. These findings identify recent advances in facilitating the access of undocumented
immigrants to higher education as well as remaining gaps in policies and programs.
