Undocumented students are children born abroad who are not U.S. citizens or legal residents, who graduate from a U.S. high school. These children, while guaranteed an education through grade 12 in the U.S. public school system, may face legal and financial barriers to higher education.
There are three main areas where undocumented students may have special concerns or face obstacles when pursuing higher education: admission, tuition, and financial aid.
You do not have to be a U.S. citizen to attend LeTourneau University. Our student body consists of students from all over the United States and from many foreign countries. Apply online at www.letu.edu/opencms/opencms/_Admissions/
As a private institution, tuition and fees at LeTourneau University are calculated without regard to residency or citizenship.
Undocumented students cannot legally receive any federal student aid, including federal direct student loans, federal grants, federal scholarships or work-study money.
If you want to become a United States citizen, here are some websites that can help.
If you are a foreign student or non-citizen, you may be eligible to qualify as a Texas resident in certain instances and could be eligible for state financial aid. To apply for state financial aid (per House Bill 1403/Senate Bill 1528), you must complete the TASFA form at: http://www.finaid.txstate.edu/more-info/TASFA.html. Please contact the financial aid office for additional information.
Scholarship opportunities are available for traditional residential applicant students. Eligibility for various grants and scholarships is determined during the application and admission process. Please speak with your admissions advisor for what is needed for admission to LeTourneau University.
