Santiago Canyon College is committed to providing affordable academic opportunities for all members of our community. California Assembly Bill 540 (AB 540), which became law on January 1, 2002, provides qualified undocumented students opportunities to further their education at the same per-unit rate as other California high school graduates.
Santiago Canyon College recognizes and celebrates the beauty and diversity in our great community. Together, we work to ensure that all students have access and support as they continue their education and make a better life for themselves and their families. We want our Dreamers and undocumented students to know that
we stand with you, and will support your efforts 100% at all times.
There continues to be a great deal of uncertainty and anxiety amongst college students surrounding the recent election results. Please know that SCC is committed to serving and protecting our students in spite of the narrative occurring at the national level. If you would like to discuss any worries regarding your future outlook and/or education, please know we have staff that are readily available to meet with you. We will ensure that your meeting will remain anonymous and confidential.
SCC has informed financial aid experts and caring counselors, faculty and staff available to review the many support services offered to all of our AB 540 students - benefits that are protected by California State Law. Please visit SCC's First Year Support Center in room E-307 (E-building, 3rd floor) for additional resources and assistance.
At this website, our AB 540 students, our Dreamers, and our undocumented students will find a variety of on-campus and off-campus resources that support academic success.
