AB540 California Dream Act
The California Dream Act was authored by Assembly Member Gil Cedillo of Los Angeles. It allows undocumented students who meet certain criteria to apply for and receive non-state funded scholarships for public colleges and universities.
It also allows undocumented students who meet certain criteria to apply for and receive state-funded financial aid such as institutional grants, community college fee waivers, Cal Grants.
Special Applications are required for undocumented students wishing to apply for benefits under AB 540 California Dream Act. The applications can be obtained from the financial aid links on the community college website, from the college financial aid office, or by visiting the California Student Aid Commission website at www.csac.ca.gov.
