General Application

Do I submit a FAFSA or a CA Dream Act

The FAFSA is available to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, T-Visa Holders, and eligible non-citizens.

The CA Dream Act is available to AB 540/AB 2000/SB 68 students who are not eligible for the FAFSA, such as DACA recipients, U-Visa Holders, and TPS recipients. You are only eligible to submit either the FAFSA or the CA Dream Act based on your citizenship status, so you should not submit both applications. Read more about California Dream Act Eligibility.
