Steps to Apply to EVC as an AB 540 Student.

Here are the steps to take classes at EVC if you are an AB 540 student. 

AB 540 definition: Assembly Bill 540 is a California law that allows eligible students to pay in-state tuition and access state-based financial aid at the State's institutions of higher education. Undocumented students who do not apply for AB 540 are charged non-resident/international student fees which is more than eight times greater than in-state tuition!
If you do not qualify for AB 540, meet with our program coordinator to talk about your options! 

Step 1: Apply for AB 540 Status: California Nonresident Tuition Exemption Application

Step 2: After you are approved as an AB 540 student at EVC, you can apply for OASISS. You can submit your OASISS application in-person at SC-214 or via email at evc.oasiss@evc.edu

Step 3: After you are approved as an AB 540 student, you can also apply for financial aid. If you need assistance with the application, reach out to us at evc.oasiss@evc.edu or EVC's Financial Aid Office at evcfa@evc.edu

Step 4: Schedule an appointment with a counselor to figure out your classes. We can help you schedule an appointment via e-mail at evc.oasiss@evc.edu

Step 5: Register for your classes! If you need help, you can schedule a meeting with us at evc.oasiss@evc.edu!
