In-State Tuition for Undocumented Students

Simply put, the AB 540/AB 2000/SB 68 Affidavit allows undocumented students to be charged in-state tuition, rather than out-of-state tuition. Learn more about attending Mission as an undocumented student.

The AB 540/AB 2000 Affidavit grants in-state tuition and allows for income-eligible students to apply for AB 130 & 131 (California state financial aid and scholarships). Eligible students must file an AB 540 Affidavit at every new campus they attend so that students are charged in-state tuition.

NOTE: Students must submit the AB 540 Affidavit to the college Admissions & Records office first, upon submission eligible student receive financial aid.
