SBCC to Provide Immigration Legal Services to Students
Source: Santa Barbara City College
Santa Barbara City College has been selected to participate in a pilot project through a partnership with the California Department of Social Services, the Foundation for California Community Colleges and the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to provide free immigration legal services.
Through this partnership, The United Farm Workers (UFW) Foundation was selected to provide immigration legal services at SBCC starting May 2020. Over the course of the next year and a half the Community College Immigration Legal Services Project will provide free immigration legal services, including education and outreach services, to students, staff and faculty on California community college campuses statewide.
This opportunity will help ensure that our Santa Barbara City College students are receiving the necessary legal consultation to continue succeeding academically.
SBCC looks to continue working with our community and expand our efforts to provide pathways to attain a higher education and the economic benefits that come with attaining a degree.
Students can schedule an appointment with a UFW Foundation attorney/accredited representative, through an online portal, for a comprehensive review of their immigration history and possible immigration remedies. Starting now appointments are available the second Tuesday and fourth Friday of every month. For more information visit: www.sbcc.edu/eopscare/resourcesdreamersundocumented.php
