(p.179) Conclusion
Undocumented and in College

This concluding chapter addresses some of the questions that were raised throughout the project, and discusses the implications of the research findings for future undocumented students, higher education institutions, and U.S. policy. The overarching conclusions that the authors drew from listening to students are that students struggle primarily with emotional stress related to their undocumented status, fear that they or their family members will be deported, the financial burden of attending college, and uncertainty regarding their futures. These forms of stress distinguish their college experiences from those of their peers who, despite having their own concerns, are more likely to have access to resources such as financial aid, medical insurance, or other basic privileges such as driving legally or having access to government-issued forms of identification.
