Undocumented students face different challenges and barriers in higher education as compared to their documented counterparts. The purpose of this thesis was to critically examine Assembly Bill 540 (AB 540) and its accessibility for undocumented students into higher education. The analysis reveals how AB 540 was a pivotal piece of legislation that sought to address the differential treatment to undocumented students in higher education based on a specific definition of residency. The findings reveal implications for social work practice as well as considerations for future policy and research.
