Undocumented: An undocumented individual is a non-citizen living in the U.S. without authorization in the form of valid immigration status having entered without inspection or entered with a valid non-immigrant visa that has since expired.
I am undocumented can I attend college?
Yes! There is no federal law that prohibits admission of undocumented students to private or public institutions.
Do I need a social security number to attend college?
Students are NOT required to provide a social security card or government ID proof of U.S. residency.
Can I receive state financial aid to attend college?
Yes! The CA Dream Act Application (CADAA) is used by undocumented students who meet the eligibility requirements of AB 540.
Will my information be kept confidential?
Yes, your information is protected by FERPA. FERPA is a federally-mandated law to ensure the privacy of student records. Students who attend college, regardless of age, are considered college students and are given this protected status. Only students have the right to their academic records, and SCC is unable to release this information to anyone else without the written consent of the student.
