DACA students are encouraged to apply for Honors status and participate in the Honors program. Our staff and director are happy to answer any questions.

Currently, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) students receive in-state tuition when enrolling as a Maricopa Community College District student.  Some limited financial assistance is available via the Maricopa Foundation Scholarships that are privately funded and verified lawful presence is not part of the eligibility process.  Additionally, here are other resources for financial assistance:
