We know students may have questions following announcements regarding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The Dean of Students Office supports all students attending Rutgers University–New Brunswick and is committed to helping students achieve success from admission until graduation. We recognize that there are specific challenges undocumented students face as they pursue their education. This website is designed to share resources and information to help undocumented students make the most of their experience at Rutgers University–New Brunswick.
If you are not sure where to go and you want to speak to someone privately about available resources, please come by the Dean of Students Office. We have walk in hours Monday to Friday from 1-5pm or you can call 848-932-2300 to schedule an appointment to meet with a Dean at another time if you cannot come in during walk in hours.

Those directly impacted by the DACA decision needing support can call CAPS at 848.932.7884 or stop in to 17 Senior Street and ask to speak with the counselor on call.
