The Dream Program provides support to DREAMers (undocumented students) at Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC). Our purpose is to increase the personal growth and development of undocumented students through academic, career, and personal counseling; peer mentoring; assistance with applying for the California Dream Act/Financial Aid and scholarship opportunities; and providing immigration legal services and workshops regarding DACA and other matters relative to this student population.
