# 179: Alternative Social Institutions
Unable to apply for student loans, and living in high levels of poverty, many undocumented students already face too many barriers to even thinking of attending, let alone graduating from, college. Yet, as if these barriers weren’t enough, two years ago the University of Georgia solidified them, by officially banning undocumented students from their five best campuses. In response, professors and students created Freedom University, an underground “college” where students can still receive an education, even if it comes without an official degree.
