DACA Update Information Session for Staff, Faculty and Administrators

Department: Office of Multicultural Student Services

A federal court in California issued an order on January 8 requiring the Trump Administration to restart the DACA program. In response, the Administration announced that it will accept renewal applications from anyone who currently has DACA status or had DACA status that has expired (for example, if yours expired, or was terminated, you may apply to renew!).  It will not accept DACA applications from individuals who have never had DACA status in the past. There are no restrictions on who can renew their DACA. For example, if your DACA expires in 2019 and you want to apply to renew now in order to extend your status into 2020, you can. 

WSU system-wide faculty, staff, and administrators are encouraged to attend a Q&A and information session Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 4-5:30 PM in The Spark room 333 regarding these recent updates. The session will provide more details about how to renew and will provide information about campus, local and national resources. 

Those unable to attend in-person will have the opportunity to do so remotely. More details are available here. 

Visit the Student Affairs DACA resource page for more information about this recent update, FAQs and renewal guidelines.
