The University of Virginia announced that it will extend financial aid eligibility to students who are part of  Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, according to The Daily Progress.

The financial aid will be available starting this fall. DACA grants temporary legal protection to young adults who were brought into the country illegally as children. UVA has accepted students of that status since 2014, but they had previously been required to pay for tuition out-of-pocket.
