Undocumented Students & Immigration Resources

Whitman seeks to establish a vibrant community of individuals who are intellectually talented, have the potential to be leaders in and out of the classroom and are from diverse backgrounds both nationally and internationally.

In support of these goals, Whitman strives to protect the security and safety of the members of our community regardless of national origin or immigration status.

In accordance with our existing practice, we will ensure the confidentiality of all student records and will not provide information about any Whitman students to any external group, including law enforcement and immigration officials, without a warrant or a court order.

DACA Update: Current status & options
JUNE 28, 2019: The U.S. Supreme Court announced on June 28, 2019, that it will grant the Trump administration's request that it review the federal court cases challenging Trump's termination of DACA. For now, the three U.S. district court orders allowing DACA recipients to submit renewal applications remain in effect, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is still accepting DACA renewal applications from anyone who has previously had DACA.

Directory Information

The college publishes an online directory with students' names, addresses, email addresses, pictures, and phone numbers. A student has the right to withhold their information from these directories and can do so by notifying Bridget Jacobson in the Dean of Students Office, Memorial Building 325, 509-527-5158.
