Read the ISSO Mission Statement here: 

The mission of the Immigrant Student Success Office (ISSO) is to recruit, enroll, and retain students, with an emphasis on new immigrants, such as students granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) who identify with the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (DREAMERS), and first-generation students by providing the necessary academic and non-academic support to ensure graduation from Brooklyn College in a timely manner. 

The following document breaks down what is possible for Undocumented Students, including those with or without DACA and TPS. Students can review this with the ISSO and explore possible career choices:

Students with undocumented status should also seek out professional advice, outside of the ones offered by the ISSO and the Magner Career Center. Students can find some resources regarding immigration law services at https://www1.cuny.edu/sites/citizenship-now/.
