Resources for Immigrant Students

Our friends at Equality Alliance prepared a list of resources available to AB 540/Immigrant Students. It’s a terrific list that provides links to information about college admission, California Non-Resident Tuition Exemption Requests, scholarships, and University AB 540 Resource Guides.
