Support for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Renewals

To date, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth have been granted DACA status, which provides work authorization and temporary relief from deportation. The program has enabled our graduates to contribute to their communities by significantly increasing opportunities for higher education and jobs. Unfortunately, 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. USCIS will continue to accept and process RENEWAL applications until Oct. 5, 2017 from applicants whose DACA expires between Sept. 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018. Below are resources in support of DACA students who are eligible for renewal:

Overview

Beginning August 15, 2012, thousands of current and former students who arrived without documentation to the United States as children may now be eligible for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. If these individuals meet certain requirements, they would be free from deportation for two years (renewable) and would be eligible for work permits even though they are not U.S. citizens.

SFUSD will help our current students and graduates apply for this opportunity by providing available enrollment histories and school transcripts:

  • For individuals who came to the United States before reaching their 16th birthday and are under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012
  • For individuals who have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007
  • For individuals who need to provide proof that they are currently in school, have graduated, or obtained a certificate of completion from high school

To request enrollment histories and school transcripts in order to satisfy residency requirements:

  • Complete the online request form. Please note that the enrollment history and transcript fees will be waived for DACA applicants. Records will be mailed to the student.
  • OR for more detailed information including cost of records, processing times, and directions to our office please see the Official Transcript Request Form.
