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 qualified students to pay in-state tuition at the State's institutions of higher education. Undocumented students who do not apply for AB 540 are charged international student fees which is more than double the 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 Request
Step 3: Schedule an appointment with a counselor to figure out your classes. We can help you schedule an appointment via e-mail at email@example.com!
Step 4: Register for your classes! If you need help, you can schedule a zoom meeting with us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
