“Why does lifelong learning have to start at 25 when we can instill this at an earlier age?” asks Edward Abeyta, Associate Dean, Community Engagement and Pre-College Programs at UC San Diego Extension. Being engaged in learning no matter the educational or career path you choose is vital to obtaining the skills and mindset you need to succeed. Abeyta outlines the programs UC San Diego is driving to engage K-16 students in not only thinking about their futures but building a skillset that can take them there. Hear how communities, industries and universities are working together to pilot programs that prepare students for college and careers.
AB 540 is a California state law passed in 2001 that allows qualified undocumented students to pay in-state tuition instead of out-of-state tuition at California’s public higher education institutions. The California DREAM act passed in 2011 allows these applicants to apply for state funded and non state funded financial aid. Though these laws ease the financial burden on students, ensuring access to these benefits is not always a straightforward process.
