Family obligations present another challenge for Hispanic students. A 2014 National Journal survey found that two-thirds of Hispanic women and men who sought full-time work or joined the military after completing high school expressed doing so to financially help their loved ones. In comparison, only 39% of white women and men who did not attend college said the same.
However, many schools classify undocumented students as «aliens,» which removes their ability to be eligible for federal financial aid and reduced in-state tuition rates.

Students in the U.S. must be classified as permanent residents before they can receive financial aid. Most immigrants obtain permanent residency by applying for a Green Card, but current laws stipulate that undocumented citizens cannot do that; instead, they must leave the U.S. and apply for permanent residency from the consulate of their home country.
In 1969, Oscar began graduate studies at the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley) where he specialized in Applied Algebra and in the then new field of Computer Science. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1973 under the supervision of the prestigious mathematician Elwyn R. Berlekamp, pioneer of the well-known Berlekamp-Massey algorithm used in Information Theory to decipher codes called BCH. At the end of his studies, Dr. Moreno returned to Puerto Rico and became a full-time professor in the Mathematics Department of the Río Piedras Campus of the UPR. Some time later, he joined the faculty of the Department of Computer Science, an academic unit in whose creation he actively participated.
In his work to promote research in mathematics and computational science in Puerto Rico, under the auspices of the EPSCoR proposal, Moreno invited numerous scientists from around the world (USA, Norway, Russia, China, India and other countries) to make research and collaboration stays on the island, generating remarkable mathematical production. In 1985 he organized the Caribbean Combinatorial Conference with the attendance of mathematicians from important international research centers. Moreno was the first to bring parallel computing to the island, through the acquisition and use of Alliant (1985), Paragon (1990) and Craig XD1 (2000) computers, the best of their respective eras. For a long period, the mathematical activity led by Dr. Moreno was so fruitful that one of the frequent visitors, Dr. Leon Henkin, a famous researcher at the University of California at Berkeley, USA, was a frequent visitor. Leon Henkin, a famous researcher at UC Berkeley, when asked what he thought of the spirit of mathematics in Puerto Rico, summed up his feelings in a brief but forceful answer: «Oscar is the spirit of mathematics in Puerto Rico».

The University of Zaragoza directly manages two University Halls of Residence on the San Francisco Campus: Colegio Mayor Universitario (CMU) Pedro Cerbuna (250 rooms) and CMU Santa Isabel (192 rooms), one more on the Río Ebro Campus (102 beds) and two more in the cities of Huesca and Teruel (CMU Ramón Acín, 125 rooms) and Teruel (CMU Pablo Serrano, 96 single rooms). In the city of Zaragoza there are also nine university residences managed by private companies. There is also a University web service that helps students who are looking for a room or apartment to rent.
