Are Dreamers Considered Legal Residents?

Recommended Posts

Are dreamers considered legal residents? I though we were but I applied for financial aid for school recently and I didn't qualify. The reason they said was because I wasn't a legal resident and didn't have a green card.

 

Who in this forum has applied and received financial aid for school and how did you do it?

Up to where I know DACA doesn't give us any type of "status". We are neither citizens, temporary or permanent residents. I got my EAD in Oct. 2012 and have been working since then. I applied for
TASFA and have been getting about $2000 per semester, excluding summer semesters. I'll be done with my basics this fall 2014 and entering my desired program in March 2015. Hope this helps.
