Given the current political landscape, we do not advise that undocumented students travel on international study abroad programs.
DACAmented students or students with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) may apply for advance parole in order to seek permission to study abroad. Students whose application for adjustment of status are pending may also apply for advance parole and travel overseas while their application is pending.
In order to apply for advance parole, students must already be approved for DACA/TPS. Approved reasons for travel include educational, humanitarian, and employment purposes. Students should know, however, that even with advance parole, a DACA/TPS parolee is still considered an applicant for admission to the U.S. and could still be subject to removal proceedings. Approved Harper College study abroad programs cannot guarantee a student re-entry into the United States. We strongly urge all students considering a study abroad program to consult with an immigration attorney prior to embarking on any international travel. For more information, see the NAFSA: DACA Resource Page.
