This financial aid initiative of the State of California and Universities of California allows eligible undocumented students to borrow state loans that help cover the cost of attending a University of California or California State University. California Dream loan aid can be accessed by students who meet the requirements of AB540, exempting them from paying non-resident tuition.
Resources: Legislature (AB540, Education Code Sections 70030-70039)
Eligible participants in University of California or California State University career pathway initiatives that qualify—or potentially will qualify—could use this resource to offset costs of tuition where applicable. It could also be leveraged to support continued training opportunities using state aid.
