Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this policy analysis was to examine the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act as it relates to access to higher education for undocumented students. The researcher used secondary data and existing literature to analyze the act. The analysis attempted to explore the impact that the DREAM Act would have for undocumented students who meet the requirements for the DREAM Act. Based on the findings of this policy analysis, the researcher found that the DREAM Act would be important legislation that would set the stage to allow undocumented students access to institutions of higher education at in-state tuition rates. Furthermore, the social and economic benefits of the implementation of the DREAM Act would be beneficial to society.
