The Dreamers Support Services Office provides programs and services to help empower undocumented and immigrant students to achieve their academic & personal pursuits and become active members of our community. We serve as a resource for undocumented and immigrant students (e.g., AB-540/SB-68, DACA, T- & U-visa, TPS, individuals without legal immigration status or with pending legal status, and mixed-status families) on topics pertaining to access to higher education, advocacy and educational materials, campus-based and community services, current events, engagement activities, legal aid referrals, legislative updates, and more.
The Dreamers Support Office operates as an open-access student support program where anyone can seek the assistance that they need. You do not need to apply; we serve all students who contact our office. However, we do encourage undocumented and immigrant students to create a Dreamer Profile.
Your Dreamer Profile is not an application; our programs and services are open-access. Your profile helps us, the Dream Team, learn more about you. It’s a tool we use to provide you with the best support that is tailored to your unique lived experience. Current and prospective (future) students can create their profile by clicking the button below. It should only take you about ten minutes or less to finish. If you need assistance, contact our office for help.
