Can my undocumented 15 year old sister in Georgia move to California for college and be eligible to pay in-state tuition?

San Jose, CA |
Filed under: Education law

My undocumented sister who is in high school in Georgia would like to continue her studies in California to become a Veterinarian since it is harder to get in-state tuition for undocumented students in Georgia. Will she be eligible in-state tuition under the CA dream act if she takes at least two years of college in CA? Or should she apply for Deferred Action instead? If it helps, she has resided in CA from 2002 up to July of 2009 and moved to Georgia after that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
