MODESTO – The Associated Students of Modesto Junior College (ASMJC) is teaming up with Students United Reaching for Equality (SURE) and Modesto Junior College’s International Student Program to host a workshop for undocumented immigrants who dream of achieving a college education.
During the workshop current MJC students will provide hands-on assistance for undocumented immigrants, and anyone else interested in attending MJC, in completing an online application to the college. The free event is themed “Dream…Possibilities are endless” and it will take place on Saturday, Jan. 31, beginning at 8 a.m. in the Mary Stuart Rogers Student Learning Center on West Campus, 2201 Blue Gum Avenue in Modesto.
Presenters will also provide information on financial aid/California Dream Act and Extended Opportunities, Programs and Services (EOP&S). The California Dream Act allows undocumented immigrants who meet certain provisions to apply for and receive community college fee waivers, Cal Grants, state-administered financial aid, university grants, and private scholarships funded through public universities.
“We want to show undocumented immigrants how they can make college a reality,” said Jose Razo, ASMJC Senator for Special Programs.
Reservations are requested by Jan. 29. To sign-up for the workshop contact the MJC International Student Program at 209.575.6012.
