Victor Valley College (VVC) supports the educational, personal, and career growth and development of our students and embraces a diverse student population. AB 540 students, also known as DREAMERS, are students who presently do not have legal residency status in the United States. In 2001, the state of California made it possible for AB 540 students to attend a California Community College (CCC), California State University (CSU), and a University of California (UC) and pay in-state resident tuition as long as the student meets the following requirements:
- Attended a California high school/adult school for at least three years;
- Graduated from a California high school/adult school, passed the GED/HiSET or passed the California High School Proficiency Exam;
- Are registered or enrolled at a public institution of higher education in California;
