How can the GED Classes help me with the Dream Act?
The purpose of the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, or the DREAM Act, is to help those persons who meet certain requirements, have an opportunity to enlist in the military or go to a college or university. The Dream Act provides a clear path to citizenship which can be missing in different circumstances or immigration cases. It can give an opportunity to undocumented immigrant students who have been residing in the U.S. in their youth.
How do I qualify?
- Entered the US before the age of 16 (15 and younger)
- Lived in the US for at least five (5) consecutive years prior to enactment of the Dream Act bill
- Finished or Graduated from a US high school, or have obtained a GED (classes count) or have been accepted into an institution of higher education (college/university)
- Must be between 12 and 35 years old at the time of application
- Good moral character
You will need to show evidence of enrollment in a school/classes, or you will need to show evidence that you graduated/completed a program.
