Our goal is to provide resources to undocumented immigrants identified by the California Dream Act, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Refugees, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and self-identified undocumented students who lack formal status through other means.

Sacramento City College aims to create a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment for undocumented immigrant students from point of recruitment, to enrollment and completion of their goals.

AB 540

Español

Assembly Bill 540 allows qualifying students, including undocumented immigrant students, to pay in-state tuition fees at public colleges or universities. This means AB 540 students will be allowed to pay the same amount for college tuition as a resident or U.S. citizen.

DACA

Español

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Certain people who came to the U.S. as children and meet several key guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and would then be eligible for work authorization. Determinations will be made on a case-by-case basis under the DACA guidelines.

AB 540

AB 540 permite que estudiantes que califican, incluyendo a estudiantes que son inmigrantes indocumentados, puedan pagar la matrícula estatal en universidades públicas. Esto significa que los estudiantes AB540 podrán pagar la misma cantidad por sus estudios universitarios que los estudiantes que son residentes o ciudadanos de los Estados Unidos.

DACA

Este memorando se asegura que el Departamento de Seguridad Interior (CBP, USCIS y ICE) practique discreción hacia ciertos individuos que llegaron a los Estados Unidos como menores en consideración de caso por caso particularmente. También permite que los individuos que han sido aprobados puedan recibir un permiso de trabajo. Ambos son válidos por un periodo de tiempo de dos años y pueden ser renovados si el memorando continúa en vigor.
