On September 5, 2017 the Trump Administration announced the end of DACA. You may still be able to apply for a renewal before October 5, 2017.  Who can renew?

  • Initial (first-time) DACA applications are NO longer accepted
  • If your DACA expires between Sept 5 and March 5, 2018, you can apply for a renewal of DACA. You MUST apply for a renewal before October 5.
  • If your DACA expires after March 6, 2018 you will not be able to renew; your DACA is valid until the date on the card
  • There will be no new renewals after March 5
