Immigrants Rising’s In-State Tuition Tool (ISTT) helps you determine whether you qualify for in-state tuition (AB 540/SB 68) in California!

You may also be eligible to receive financial aid from the state and your school.

The ISTT is currently closed as we make updates in response to the passage of SB 1141.

As of January 1, 2023, SB 1141 expands AB 540/SB 68 by removing the two-year cap on credit courses taken at the California Community Colleges (CCC). This means students will be able to use three years of full-time credits (or the part-time equivalent) from a CCC to meet the attendance requirements for in-state tuition and apply for the California Dream Act.

Check back in March 2023 for an updated ISTT that will include this expansion!

In the meantime, please take a look at the SB 1141 Overview to learn more about in-state tuition requirements.

This Tool is a collaboration between Immigrants Rising staff, Marithza Quiroz (Lead Design), and the undocumented students and educators who provided feedback that helped develop this new iteration.
