California Dream Act (AB 540)

Are You An Undocumented Immigrant Student and Want to go to College?

Several years ago, many undocumented immigrant students were unable to afford the out-of-state tuition costs that they were required to pay to attend public universities and colleges in California. As a result, many could not attend college. However, higher education became more affordable for undocumented students in California on January 1, 2002, because California’s AB540 law allows qualifying students, including undocumented immigrant students, to pay in-state tuition fees at public colleges and universities (Community Colleges, CSUs, and UCs).
