Undocumented Graduate Student Resources

Resources for Undocumented Graduate Students

The Office for Graduate Diversity (OGD) plays a central role in advancing the university’s mission to foster academic excellence through diversity. OGD provides support services for prospective and continuing students on the Berkeley campus in an effort to maintain a more diverse graduate student community. OGD serves as a resource for the admissions process, academic support services, financial advice, and professional development. It also provides a forum for ideas and programs designed to enhance the educational experience of undocumented students. Constantly a work in progress, we are working towards creating an evermore vibrant community of undocumented graduate students. We urge you to get plugged in right away to experience the benefits of UC Berkeley graduate community support! 

All students, faculty, & staff responding to or having contact with an immigration officer:

who is executing a federal immigration order should refer the entity or individual to campus counsel for purposes of verifying the legality of any warrant, court order, or subpoena (Chief Campus Counsel David Robinson, dmrobinson@berkeley.edu, 510-642-7791). Please also notify UCPD as soon as possible for support (510-642-3333).
