CASFAA Statement Regarding Recent Changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) Program
Passed 9/7/17 by the 2016-2017 Executive Council

The California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (CASFAA) disagrees with the recent decision by President Trump’s administration to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  The program has been a beacon of hope and unprecedented educational opportunities for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, most of whom have never known another country other than the United States.  Their potential for positive, dedicated service to their adopted country is severely jeopardized by the decision to strip away benefits enacted by this widely accepted and popular program.

Look out for #CASFAA2017 to follow along with the upcoming conference.


Statement passed unanimously by the Executive Council on 6/5/17:

The California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (CASFAA) opposes the elimination of any post-secondary institution from participation in the CalGrant program based solely on its segment or tax status (i.e. Independent or Private non-Profit schools, Proprietary or for-Profit schools, the University of California, the California State University, or the Community Colleges). In an effort to protect students, we oppose reducing CalGrant funds to students because of their choice of school when that school is compliant with Federal and State regulations. We support student success, and access to CalGrant funding is essential for producing an educated, diverse population in the great State of California.
