Ive lived in the us since i was 8 years old and im wondering if i qualify for the dreamers act i have been to mexico and renewed my visa last year i graduated high school with a diploma and started college but due to money i couldnt continue school
First things first, there is no effective federal Dream Act law to comment on. At present, unfortunately, no such eligibility exists for anyone in your position. That status quo only intensifies a true humanitarian tragedy as many young people in your position cannot move on with their life, study and be equal members of the society due to that apparent absence of needed federal legislation to address this crisis.

You may qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (referred to as DACA, but this is not the "Dream Act"). I recommend that you consult with an attorney in your area to see whether you meet all of the criteria and there is nothing in your immigration history that would disqualify you.

No, you do not qualify. It is for sure because there is no Dreamers act. Never has been and it is very questionable whether it will ever be. Whether you qualify for the administrative benefit of DACA depends on your reviewing eligibility requirements which are very straightforward in most cases and figuring it out.
