Excel in your education

  • Read! Learn to write!
  • Your education depends on you.
  • Establish an educational plan early.
  • Challenge yourself.
  • Take as many AP/IB/ Honors classes as possible; college admission is becoming more competitive.
  • Take advantage of dual enrollment programs. Take classes in local community colleges while in high school. This can save you money and time plus give you an edge over others applying to college. (Dual enrollment is free, if not less expensive for you while in high school. Ask your high school counselor for more information.)
  • Be involved in your community.
  • Inform and educate other students about educational opportunities for undocumented students.
  • Ask questions.
  • Look for guidance.
  • Apply for scholarships.
  • Be patient-current laws may take time to pass.
  • Please remember that as an undocumented student you will need to work harder than other students.
  • Contact individual colleges for application fee waivers if needed.
  • Set your standards high.
  • Excel in Honors/AP/IB English and Math. You will need it.
