I just turned 15 years old. May I apply for Deferred Action (DACA)?

Sep 25 2015

Yes. If you are 15 years old, and you meet the other Deferred Action (DACA) requirements, you can apply for a DACA.  If you are 14, going on 15 years old, you can begin to gather documents and start filling out the application so that you will be ready to submit your application the day you turn 15.   

The DACA program began on August 15, 2012 so it has been in existence for over a year now.  However, after an initial surge of a lot of applications and advertisements the program has been talked about less and less. 

Also, some groups are underrepresented in the program, including people who have been out of school for a while and younger students who are ‘aging in’ to DACA eligibility.  New high school students, who were not eligible to apply earlier because they were too young, should start to consider if they could apply for a DACA now.

For questions about the other DACA requirements, or if you would like to find out if you qualify for a DACA please make an appointment today.
