Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Renewal Eligibility

USCIS instructions for DACA renewal applications specify that a person may be considered for DACA renewal if he or she met the guidelines for consideration of initial DACA and

  • did not depart the U.S. on or after August 15, 2012, without advance parole;
  • has continuously resided in the United States since submitting the prior DACA application, and
  • has not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor or three or more misdemeanors,  and is not a threat to national security or public safety.

However, USCIS may ask you for additional information as well as for documents to verify the information on your DACA renewal application.

Please note that eligibility for DACA renewal is not limited to people who currently are under age 31.  You cannot “age out” of eligibility for DACA if you were born after June 15, 1981.   You do not need to have a job in order to be eligible for DACA renewal.  You do not have to be enrolled in college to be eligible for DACA renewal.
