What are the requirements? ↑
How do I apply? ↑
The application for 2013-14 will be available on January 1, 2103, and the priority deadline will be March 2, 2013.
To apply for the programs available under the DREAM act, you will use the Dream Application which will collect basic personal and income information to determine student eligibility for funding under AB131.
Students will need to complete the Dream Application every year to determine eligibility for state and institutional aid. If you have not already done so, students should complete and submit to the Humboldt State University Admissions Recruitment Office the AB540 Affidavit (California Non-Resident Tuition Exemption Request form) in order to begin a review of your eligibility.
