Financial Aid and Scholarships

PUBLIC CHARGE:

We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, the US Department of Homeland Security announced that the government is no longer defending the 2019 Public Charge. The U.S. Supreme Court and the Seventh Circuit has dismissed any pending cases regarding the 2019 Public Charge. Health care programs, including Medicaid and COVID care, housing, food programs, and many other vital services are one again safe to use. Meanwhile, many eligible immigrants will be able to pursue legal status without fear. 


Financial Aid:

Visit the Financial Aid Office Website at SRJC to learn about the financial aid opportunities offered for Undocumented Students in CA and at SRJC.

Remember to submit your CA Dream Act Application every year between October 1st and March 2nd. This is specially important for transferring undocumented students.
