Undocumented Dreamers

If you are an undocumented student, you are not alone.
YOU CAN GO TO COLLEGE!
It is important for undocumented students to take advantage of valuable educational opportunities. 

 

University of California stated that "Undocumented students of all ethnicities and nationalities can find a safe environment and supportive community at the University of California. Whether you’re thinking about applying to UC or already a student at one of our ten campuses, there are various programs to help you transition to and succeed at UC.

 

UC campuses offer a range of support services — from academic and personal counseling, to financial aid and legal advising — that can help you balance being a full-time student while handling other day-to-day challenges you may face. In fact, every campus has designated staff or faculty members who can work with you to find the right support on campus and answer your questions."

Immigrant Students AB540

ASSEMBLY BILL AB540

AB 540 allows qualified undocumented students to be exempt from paying significantly higher out-of-state tuition at public colleges and universities in California. By making college more affordable, AB 540 has had a significant impact on the lives of many undocumented students who have dreams of attending college.

Students are eligible for the AB 540 exemption if they meet ALL of the following requirements:

  • Attend a California high school for 3 or more years;
  • Graduate from a California high school or receive the equivalent, such as a GED;
  • Submit an affidavit (a written promise) to the California public college or university where they are attending or plan to attend. In this statement students declare that they meet all AB 540 requirements and if they are undocumented, that they have filed an application to adjust their immigration status or will do so as soon as they are eligible to do so.
