Welcome Asylees, DACA recipients, and Undocumented Persons!
Make School remains committed to a mission of changing Tech for the better through a revolutionary hands-on curriculum, accelerated pace, and an emphasis on supporting diversity and inclusion both in our program and in Tech.
As an Asylee, DACA Recipient, or Undocumented persons, you will follow the same process for applications as our First Year and Transfer Applicants. Please use the links to review what is required of you. If you are an Asylee applicant who has not yet been approved for Asylum, you will need to apply as an International F-1 Visa applicant. Please refer to our International Admissions webpage to see what is required for you.
All International Transcripts and Test scores must be assessed using a NACES approved credential evaluation. You must use a NACES approved evaluator that meets our Course by Course analysis standard. If you choose to use SpanTran, you must select a Divisional Course analysis standard. These documents range from $85.00 - $600.00 depending on which organization you select, and how quickly you request a document be reviewed. If you are unsure if an organization meets our requirements, email firstname.lastname@example.org prior to ordering the document to avoid paying twice for a document.
DACA recipients and approved asylees will need to scan and upload their documents confirming their status directly to their portal, or email them to email@example.com. Undocumented students will need to list Undocumented under their citizenship status. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your status there if you feel more comfortable.
