Though CA Dream applicants may not be eligible for all the financial aid programs offered at CCSF, CA Dream applicants can still qualify for financial aid to cover enrollment fees and supplies. Additionally, undocumented students who do not qualify for the CA Dream Act can still look into scholarship opportunities that do not require proof of citizenship or residency status.
