The California Dream Act allows eligible undocumented students to receive California State sponsored financial aid. Qualifying students can be eligible for certain types of state financial aid such as CSU scholarships and grants, Cal Grants, Chafee Foster Youth Grants and other state financial aid.
Students will need to complete the California Dream Application every year to determine continuing eligibility for state and institutional aid. The annual deadline to submit is March 2nd each year. Funds, known as the California Dream Loan, are limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We also have some tips on applying for the California Dream Act.
Students of Cal State East Bay should also complete and submit the California Non-Resident Tuition Exemption Request form in order to begin a review of your eligibility.
