Yes. CSU is committed to providing a high quality education to all qualified students, regardless of background — including citizenship status.
Follow these tips when you apply:
- Within the Citizenship section, list the country that you were born in.
- Only use the “dual citizenship” prompt to list any other countries where you have legal citizenship (e.g., you can obtain a passport from that country, can travel without a passport to that country, have a parent born in that country, etc.).
- Under ‘Visa type’, select ‘Do Not Currently Hold a Valid U.S. Non-Immigrant Visa’.
- If you are a DACA student, leave the social security number (SSN) blank; do not enter your DACA ID in place of SSN.
- If you are living in Colorado, be sure to answer the additional questions about your Colorado connections and potential eligibility for the ASSET program.
Undocumented students are treated as domestic students in the admission process and should follow all the recommendations in the application guide appropriate to their student type (e.g. freshman, transfer, etc.).
In our decision process, we base selection on an applicant’s academic and personal readiness for success at CSU. Citizenship is not a factor.
