What is the California DREAM Act?

Assembly Bills 130 & 131, known as the California DREAM Act of 2011, are laws that increase access to financial aid for undocumented students who attend a public university, community college or private college in California. The DREAM act allows undocumented students to receive scholarships administered by public institutions (AB-130) and state funded grants including Cal Grants, California College Promise Grant (CCPG- formerly known as the BOG Fee Waiver) and university grants (AB-131). To qualify, students must meet the requirements for AB 540 and not be eligible to apply for the FAFSA.

The window for submitting the application to determine financial need for the followng academic year is from October 1 to March 2.
