  1. Universities in Texas will admit undocumented immigrants. You also should talk to the school of your interest. Regarding your 2nd question, even if undocumented immigrants graduate from a medical school/dental school/dental hygienist program, a state's licensing authority will not issue them a license until they become a permanent resident.

    This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. Consult with a qualified attorney before making any legal decisions. Gen Kimura, (832) 247-6932.


  2. You need to ask the school what their admission requirements are.

    J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
