Financial Aid for Undocumented Students
Through the California Dream Act (AB540), many undocumented students may be eligible
for financial aid, scholarships, or other forms of assistance.
The Skyline College Financial Aid Office is committed to helping all students apply
for financial aid. UCC staff can help connect you with a Financial Aid representative
who can help you navigate the information around AB540.

Deferred Action for Child Arrivals
Through an executive order enacted by President Obama in 2012, some undocumented youth
who came to the U.S. as children may be granted a type of temporary permission to
stay in the U.S.
Immigration Legal Clinic
SparkPoint and the UCC host the Immigration Legal Clinic, which aspires to meet the
unmet needs for access to legal information by our community. As envisioned, the clinic
will help bridge the justice gap by providing access to legal services for under-resourced
members of the local community. Since late in Fall 2016, the clinic has seen a noticeable
increase in the number of students who come to the Clinic to ask questions about their
immigration status and to voice fears of deportation. This investment in our community
allows the Clinic to be an integral part of holistic services to students by providing
free and confidential legal information on immigration matters, SparkPoint helps students
stay safe and on track to meet their educational goals.
As clinic supervisor Maria Segarra stated, “As an immigrant, I know what it feels
like to be afraid, to be uncertain, and to worry about what the future holds. I hope
that together with the Undocumented Community Center, Sparkpoint, and Skyline College,
we can provide a safe and caring place for undocumented students, families, and community
members. We are here to serve.”
The clinic is open to students, staff, and the public. Please make an appointment if you would like to visit the clinic. All consultations are virtual, free and confidential. For questions or information, please contact SparkPoint at (650) 738-7035.
