What is a Dream Act ID

For students who do not have a Social Security Number, the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) assigns these students with a unique student identification number called the Dream Act ID as a means of identifying, tracking, and sharing student information for its various financial aid programs. Once a student has successfully submitted their CA Dream Act Application, the Dream Act ID can be found on the student’s “Confirmation Page” of their CA Dream Act Application. Students will need to use their Dream Act ID in order to create a WebGrants for Students (WGS) account. Students should not be using their DACA SSN, high school or college ID numbers to create a WGS account. The Dream Act ID is nine digits long and always starts with three zeros (000).

Students should notate the Dream Act ID number in all communication with CSAC via email, telephone, or written document.
