Undocumented Students

Last year UC President Janet Napolitano allocated 5 million dollars among the 10 UC campuses to be used in support of undocumented students attending the UC. Please open the power point that highlights current California legislative policies related to undocumented students; the California Dream Act; Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA); applying to the UC as an undocumented student; and what do when admitted to a UC campuses.

Remember that student's immigration status has no bearing on their college admission. With California legislative initiatives (AB 540 and CA Dream Act), college is now achievable for these students. Recent California AB 1159, now permits undocumented college graduates to pursue 40 professional licenses and practice in their chosen careers; e.g., law, nursing, and more. DACA now permits undocumented students to study abroad or leave the US for educational purposes; e.g., field studies, research, etc.   -2015
