Undocumented Applicants

At the University of San Diego, we consider ourselves lucky to live in a city that has the unique privilege of sharing an international border. We believe it is our duty to honor that privilege and to welcome our global community to Alcalá Park with open arms. We believe in the power of diversity, and we believe in supporting the academic pursuits of each and every member of the diverse community that calls our campus home. We believe that no matter where our individual journeys began or where they end, we are all Toreros. And we know that all Toreros will always find a home in the University of San Diego. We are here to support you as you take the life-changing steps toward furthering your education, and we hope the resources below will help guide you in your decision to become a Torero. If your parents speak Spanish, we are also pleased to provide information in Spanish.
