“Undocumented Student Resources” Breakout Session Description:
What exactly can undocumented students do or not do as it relates to college majors and careers? This session will address current state and federal legislation impacting DREAMers.

Students can also become contractors under an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN). The presenter will be able to answer questions in both English and Spanish.
