"I found a sense of visibility about me as a human and as a student. I finally felt I belonged."
Immigrants Rising’s In-State Tuition Tool (ISTT) helps you determine whether you qualify for in-state tuition (AB 540/SB 68) in California!
|How much can I save each year by paying in-state tuition?|
|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.
