The Undocumented Student Program at Imperial Valley College serves all students, faculty and staff who identify as undocumented, AB 540, DACA and those with mixed-status families. We strongly advocate for the rights of our undocumented community and work towards creating a better climate for our undocumented community on our campus.
We are located in the Student Affairs Office (Building 1000), office 1000-B. For immediate assistance please call 760-355-6509 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

At Imperial Valley College, we are committed to the support of students from diverse immigration statuses. We recognize and support Undocumented, AB 540, DACAmented and mixed-status students through a variety of services to enhance your educational experience. I am happy to meet with you, one on one, to further create pathways of success in your time at Imperial Valley College and look into future plans and how we can contribute to such plans. Within the department, we provide an equity-driven service, always believing in your potential as a student.
The Higher Education Legal Services (HELS) initiative is a unique opportunity for students, staff, and faculty at local colleges to access personalized Immigration Legal Services from highly qualified legal practitioners. JFS Immigration Attorneys and Department of Justice Representatives are available at local schools to provide culturally-competent, trauma-informed, and reliable expertise to the campus community.
