Undocumented students do not have access to federal loans. As a result, there was a several thousand dollar gap in their financial aid packages. SB 1210 established the California DREAM Loan Program to serve UC and CSU students. The loan limits, interest rates, and eligibility requirements are similar to those available to documented students through federal loan programs.
Who is eligible?
Students that meet the AB540/130/131 eligibility requirements and cannot access federal student loans.
