The New York State DREAM act lets undocumented students apply for financial aid for higher education.

Under this law:

  • Undocumented students can apply for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
  • Undocumented students can access the 529 College Savings Program

Apply for grant and scholarship programs.

The NYS DREAM Act helps undocumented students attend and complete college.

This legislation does not grant citizenship. Only the federal government can make laws about immigration status.

The NYS DREAM Act does not impact federal programs like Pell Grants and FAFSA. Only the federal government can make such changes.
