TICAS Letter of Support for California AB 1540

In a letter to the California Assembly on Higher Education Committee, TICAS expressed its strong support for AB 1540 (M. Fong). AB 1540 would expand access for undocumented students by streamlining the process by which they can apply for financial aid in California by incorporating the AB 540 affidavit within the California Dream Act Application (CADAA). This is the next step in California’s progressive pathway to ensure that undocumented students are able to go to and through college by paying in-state tuition and accessing the country’s most generous financial aid system.
