Undocumented/AB 540 Students

  • New students are now eligible for EOP.

    What is an AB 540 student? An undocumented student who meets certain criteria and able to pay in-state tuition.

    Quick Tips for AB 540 students filling out a college application:

    1. Fill out all information correctly, including questions pertaining to you or your parents’ residency. If you do not answer accurately you may be classified as a foreign student and subject to nonresident tuition fees!
    2. If you do qualify for AB 540 status, please self-identify as such for SDSU admissions and EOP.
    3. Follow up on all requests and/or forms from your campus regarding residency questionnaires. If you have concerns or questions call the Admission office and ask for residency personnel that can help you. Everything stays confidential!
    4. Adhere to deadlines! This is VERY important as you may miss out on important information or opportunities.
    5. Fill out CA DREAM ACT–NOT the FAFSA. Even if you have been provided with a Social Security number via DACA; this is for work purposes only. You must use the same name as listed on CSU Mentor for CA DREAM Act to ensure proper matching. Filing the incorrect form will DELAY your financial aid award.
