CA State Laws Concerning Attending Colleges and Universities

Many undocumented students think they can not attend college because of their status.

California state laws like AB540, AB2000, SB 68 and the CA Dream Act, help undocumented students attend college.  These laws are not affected by federal policies since they were passed under state legislation and not federal legislation.  This means that undocumented students who qualify under these laws can still attend California public colleges and universities and qualify to receive financial aid under the CA Dream Act.
