AB 130 allows students who meet AB 540 criteria (California Education Code 68130.5(a)) to apply for and receive non-state funded scholarships for public colleges and universities.

AB 131 allows students who meet AB 540 criteria to apply for and receive state-funded financial aid such as institutional grants, community college fee waivers, Cal Grant and Chafee Grant.

The 2018-2019 application opens on October 1. 

Students who are eligible for the Dream Act, do not need to complete the FAFSA.  If you are not sure if you should complete the Dream Act Application or the FAFSA, then go to the Dream Act page and choose "Start Application".  This will walk you through a series of questions to determine what application you should complete.  The California Dream Act website has all the information you will need to complete the application.  Go to www.caldreamact.org 

There will be FAFSA/Dream Act Application Labs in the Career/College Center, from 2:40 to 4:30, (unless otherwise noted) on the following dates:

     Wednesday, October 17 - 2:30 to 3:30

     Wednesday, October 24

     Wednesday, November 7

     Wednesday, November 14

In addition, Mrs. May will be offering Titan Up sessions where students can work on their CADA or FAFSA.  Look for these Financial Aid sessions when you register for sessions.
