Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was an executive action allowing undocumented children who met several guidelines to request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. With changes happening rapidly with DACA, we'll provide our students with the support they need. Learn more about DACA. And check out these FAQs on the Rescission Of DACA.
