California Dream Act Application

The California Dream Act allows students who were brought into the US under the age of 16 without proper visas/immigration documentation who have attended school on a regular basis and otherwise meet in-state tuition and GPA requirements to apply for student financial aid benefits.


The application is used solely to determine eligibility for state financial aid and isn't shared with the federal government or used for immigration enforcement purposes.


The California Student Aid Commission has strict security and confidentiality policies and procedures in place to protect the integrity and confidentiality of student records.The California Student Aid Commission has not now, or in the past, shared any information which would indicate a student's immigration status, either documented or undocumented. The California Student Aid Commission also adheres to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99), a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.


Joint statement from State Superintendent of Public Instruction and Executive Director of the California Student Aid Commission. 12/20/16

TIP411 is a great program that allows students to report on many issues including bullying. Students text 847411 and then must start with message 707safe so the call center knows it is a message from Napa. The number is scrambled so it is anonymous. The student should be prepared for a text reply asking for more info or clarification as to which school, where happening specifically and which student. All of that is anonymous too. Students can also report via web or in person to a teacher or counselor.
