How to Apply - DREAM Application (Prospective Undergraduates)

Make sure to submit your Dream application by March 2 to be considered for state and institutional financial aid.

Completing the DREAM Application is the first step toward getting financial aid for college.

The California Dream Act of 2011 allows students who meet AB540 criteria to apply for and receive funds from certain state and institutional financial aid programs. Completing and submitting the DREAM Application is free and quick. In addition, your Dream Application is used by some scholarship providers to determine whether you qualify for their awards.

The Dream Application becomes available every October 1 and the deadline to apply is March 2. If you miss the Dream Application deadline, you will miss your opportunity to be considered for CA State and CSULB Institutional financial aid for the year.
