Undocumented Student Week of Action

There are many educational and career opportunities for Undocumented students in California. Here are a few options for you:


Academic Pathway


If you are an undocumented student at SRJC and have completed the required courses to transfer, received an AA, graduated from high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma (GED, HiSet, etc.) you may qualify for instate tuition and financial aid at a UC or CSU. You may also qualify for this benefit at different private universities across the country, but you will have to contact the Admissions and Records Office at each institution to learn about their tuition policy for undocumented students.

Undocumented Student Week of Action

October 15-20, 2018

The California Community Colleges Board of Governors declared Oct. 15-19 as Undocumented Student Week of Action in a resolution adopted at its September meeting. The resolution notes that California Community Colleges are committed to providing an open and welcoming environment for all students, regardless of ethnicity, religion, national origin, immigration status, age, gender, medical condition or socioeconomic status.

In partnership with the Community College League of California, the Faculty Association of California Community Colleges, the Foundation for California Community Colleges, Immigrants Rising and other organizations, community colleges across the state will use the advocacy week to encourage students to host meetings with members of Congress, offer webinars, workshops and legal clinics for students, call on representatives to work toward comprehensive immigration reform and share resources for undocumented students.

The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office is encouraging its campuses to engage in a range of activities in supporting undocumented students and Santa Rosa Junior College has a full week of activities planned.
