DACA Resources Available to Students

 DACA Information:

On September 5, 2017, President Trump directed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to phase out and eventually end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) over two and half years. This means that, as of September 5, 2017:
  • USCIS will continue to process all pending INITIAL applications ACCEPTED as of September 5, 2017.
  • USCIS will reject all other new INITIAL applications.
  • USCIS will continue to process all pending RENEWAL applications that have already been filed.
  • USCIS will continue to accept and process RENEWAL applications until October 5, 2017 from applicants whose DACA expires between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018. DACA recipients whose DACA has already expired are no longer eligible to renew.
  • USCIS will reject all INITIAL and RENEWAL applications received after October 5, 2017.

 What does it mean for students?

AB540 and the California DREAM Act are still in place. They are totally separate from the federal DACA program. Whether or not you have DACA does not affect your ability to attend college or apply for or receive state financial aid.

 What is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

E4FC What we Know Now...DACA

President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) when he becomes President. However, he will not become President until he is inaugurated on January 20, 2017, so meanwhile DACA will remain in place and USCIS will continue processing both initial and renewal DACA requests.

We do not know when or how the Trump administration will end the DACA program. It could end the program effective immediately and instantly revoke work permits, or it could allow current DACA recipients to keep their work permits until they expire but not renew them.

For the rest of the information, please visit:

Deferred Action

In June 2012, President Obama announced that his administration would not remove SOME undocumented people or put them into Immigration Court. Instead, they will be able to apply for “Deferred Action,” which is a temporary two-year period during which no attempt will be made to remove the individual and a possible work card. This status can be renewable. Please go to E4FC to get the most updated information on this policy or see the E4FC Step-by-Step Guide or go to

U.S.  Citizenship and Immigration Services
