Notre Dame announced on Thursday that they will begin accepting qualified undocumented  students. A written release stated the school will give “deserving young people the chance for a Notre Dame education.”

The University of Notre Dame has adopted changes in its admission policies that will make possible the admission of undocumented students who successfully compete for a place in its first-year and transfer classes.

"In making the decision to admit academically qualified men and women who are undocumented," said Don Bishop, associate vice president for undergraduate enrollment, "We will strengthen our incoming class and give deserving young people the chance for a Notre Dame education."

Notre Dame is committed to meeting the full demonstrated financial need for all admitted students.

In the past, Notre Dame asked undocumented students to apply as international students. Part of that application process, however, required the student to show a student visa which they didn’t have. Now, the Catholic university in Indiana will treat undocumented students as domestic students.
