Legal Assistance

Eastern Washington University is committed to building a community that celebrates and promotes the differences among all people. We promote a learning environment characterized by inclusiveness, and we value the awareness and understanding of each other's differences and similarities, striving to treat all with dignity and respect.

EWU doesn't provide legal advice to students, so if you're looking for legal assistance for your personal immigration situation, you'll want to talk to a licensed attorney who is an expert on immigration or refugee law.

The resources below may help you identify people and organizations who can provide confidential and professional legal advice.

You can also contact EWU's enrollment advocate. The enrollment advocate can't provide legal advice but may be able to help you find resources for your specific situation.
