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;
- Complete an AB 540 California Nonresident Exemption Request
- Notice: If you don't meet the requirements for AB540, students may be eligible for in-state tuition via AB 2000 or SB 68 and the CA Dream Act by viewing this grid and meeting with a VVC Counselor.
AB 2000 & SB 68 also identify as DREAMERS.
In addition to applying to VVC, DREAMERS will need to provide proof (documentation) that they meet the above requirements by submitting the below documents/forms to Admissions and Records (Bldg. 23):
- Official high school/adult school transcripts (sealed);
