Advocate Log-in

Undocumented students may face barriers to reporting an incident. As an undocumented student, you have rights!

  • You will not be theatened with deportation by USD if you choose to report or seek supprt from a CARE Advocate: this is considered a violation of both Title IX and the Clery Act as it is an active discouragement from reporting.
  • You can file a complaint anonymously: either with the federal government or USDIf you fear exposing your undocumented status you are under no obligation to include your name or identifying information in your complaint.
  • You will not be asked to disclose your immigration status to USD administrators when reporting a sexual assault: this is considered intimidation and violates the Clery Act.
  • You do have the right to report the crime to authorities. In cases such as these, sexual assault survivors can apply for a U-Visa which protects survivors working with law enforcement from being deported. U-Visas have a nationwide cap and can be difficult to obtain, however, you should not feel that you are limited in reporting―if you feel strongly about reporting the assault to the authorities a U-Visa is an option.
