Returning Student – I have already met the requirements


The information provided on this page is for students who have previously applied and been approved for the Dream Act at Montgomery College.

If you have already been approved for the Dream Act at MC, you will need to reapply every academic year.  For example, if you were previously approved for the Dream Act for the 2017-2018 academic year,  you will need to reapply for the Dream Act for the 2018-2019 academic year.  

The following forms must be submitted to Montgomery College in order to get re-approved for the Dream Act. The priority deadlines are July 1 for fall semesters, January 1 for spring semesters, and May 1 for summer semesters. The latest possible deadlines to submit paperwork is by the end of the third week of classes for fall and spring semesters, and the end of the first week of classes for summer terms.

If you have not reapplied for the Dream Act by August 1, your tuition will be changed to out of state.

  1. A new signed affidavit vowing to file an application to become a permanent resident within 30 days after becoming eligible to apply. 
  2. Copies of your Maryland state income tax returns or the returns filed by your parents or legal guardian for the most recent tax year(s). This Maryland state income tax return will state Form 502 or Form 503 at the top in bold print. The tax return must be signed by the taxpayer.
    1. For example, if you are reapplying for the Dream Act for the 2018-2019 academic year and you wish to take classes during the fall or spring semester, submit a new affidavit and the signed Maryland state income tax return for 2017.
    2. If you are reapplying for the Dream Act for the 2018-2019 academic year and you wish to take classes during the summer, submit a new affidavit and signed Maryland state income tax returns for 2017 and 2018.

* Paperwork submitted after the deadline will not be considered for that current semester and will be deferred to the next semester.
