Mission Statement

Welcome to the Saddleback College Undocumented Student Support webpage. Saddleback College is deeply committed to the inclusion of all people, regardless of their race, ethnicity, heritage, national origin, immigration status, religion, age, sexual orientation, or level of ability. Saddleback College is dedicated to student success, inclusion, and the powerful representation of each member of our community. 

The Undocumented Student Support webpage provides a variety of resources to our Dreamers, AB540 eligible students and our undocumented students to support academic success. California Assembly Bill 540 (AB540) is a California law that allows qualified undocumented students opportunities to further their education and pay in-state tuition fees at all California Community Colleges.

If you are an undocumented student, there are many resources available to you. Please know Saddleback Colleges caring allies are ready to help and protect our undocumented community and their families. At Saddleback College you will find a safe environment and supportive community.

Welcome to opportunity.
