Elvira Covarrubias, Enrollment Specialist at Sierra College
My main focus is to serve Roseville High School District, Placer County Adult Schools, ESL Community, Spanish Speaking community, Undocumented/ mix-status community, and many more during their enrollment process at Sierra College.
We have an exceptional program at the Sierra College campus, the Undocumented Student Center. We offer virtual California Dream Act (CADA) workshops for undocumented students who do not qualify for FAFSA based on their citizenship status. We also provide mix-status families with 1-on-1 appointments and workshops on getting through FAFSA. As a former mix-status high school student, I understand some students' difficulties when filling out applications like FAFSA and CADA. We are here to alleviate some of that pressure to make the process a little friendlier and less intimidating.
We are here for potential Sierra College students and any Undocumented/ mix-status student needing help through the financial aid process. Below, I am sharing an email from the Sierra College Undocumented Student Center promoting our upcoming CADA workshops and contact information to our Triage team.
