"The University of Arizona is urging Congress to deliver an expedient legislative solution that provides all DACA students with certainty in fulfilling all of their educational potential. In concert with our governing board, the Arizona Board of Regents, we are providing all of the support possible to DACA students as permitted by law. 

"The University of Arizona is dedicated to providing quality higher education to advance our communities, our country and our world. In that regard, it is our goal to make education accessible to all students and lifelong learners. In the meantime, the UA is offering resources through the Immigrant Student Resource Center with the goal of assisting DACA students with the completion of their educational ambitions, and we continue to explore available options."
