California Dream Act


Completion of the Dream Act application is required to determine eligibility for California student financial aid for AB540 eligible students only. Your application will be processed by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC).


The Dream Act Application is not an application for federal financial aid. Students who are eligible to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), must use that application to maximize   their opportunity to receive student financial aid. The FAFSA application is online at:



DO NOT complete the Dream Act application if you are eligible to complete the FAFSA.


If you have questions regarding the Dream Act or if you are unsure of your eligibility under AB540, please contact the Financial Aid Dream Center Liaison at
