California Dreamer Act financial aid (California Student Aid Commission) , CA Dream Act Application may be filed throughout the year. Dream Act link: https://dream.csac.ca.gov/ Porterville College provides a safe and welcoming environment for undocumented, AB540, and/or DACA students and supporters.

Please Note: "Regardless of what happens at the federal level, state financial aid for Dreamers remains legal in California. A Dreamer student does not need to be DACA-certified to be eligible for a public education or state financial aid. Losing DACA status will not affect most state financial aid. The information provided via the California Dream Act Application is used solely to determine eligibility for state financial aid and is not shared with the federal government or used for immigration enforcement purposes. The CSAC will protect this information to the fullest extent of the law." Lupita Cortez Alcala, CSAC Director
