Students and Families Resources
Dreamers and Undocumented Students
California is one of at least 18 states in the United States that has laws that support the educational endeavors of California DREAMERS. State laws (such as AB540, SB 130, SB 131, AB 1899, AB 2000, SB 1210) have increased access and equity to financial resources that make a post-secondary education much more attainable within the state of California and its three tiers of public institutions.
Increasingly, more independent (private) colleges and universities across the United States with large endowments are also clearing financial obstacles for this population of students so that they can attend their schools without the need and worry of student loans nor housing and food insecurity. Some even provide travel stipends, which can ease financial burdens for these students and their families.
