Are you concerned that you can't go to college because of your immigration status?

If you dream of a better future, you can prepare for it, even without papers, AND you can pay lower in-state tuition instead of out-of-state tuition if you qualify SB 68/AB 540. This is possible because of a state law known as SB 68/AB 540 or 的 California Nonresident Tuition Exemption.

关键信息
  • AB 540 exempts students (including undocumented students) who meet eligibility 需求 from out-of-state tuition fees.

    In 2017, AB 540 was expanded through SB68 to include adult schools and CA Community Colleges (non-credit and credit classes) attendance and o的r graduation or degree 需求

  • Qualifying for AB 540/SB 68 provides students with 的 ability to pay resident fees and apply for 的 state-based financial aid through 的 CA Dream Act, if eligible. AB 540/SB 68 also allows eligible students to 1) participate in EOP&S和EOP在 CCC、基督教社会联盟 & UC and 2) receive 的 admissions application fee waiver at 的 CSU & UC.

  • Undocumented individuals, T and U visa holders, U.S. citizens, and lawfully present immigrants who meet 的 eligibility criteria can qualify for AB 540 / SB 68. 不幸的是, individuals with international student visas, visitor visas, or o的r "Non-Immigrant" statuses are not eligible to apply for in-state tuition.
