What You Should KnowImage_ILRC DACA Renewal Options_Sept. 2017

  • DACA work permits are still valid. If you have DACA, you will continue to have it until it expires.
  • If you have already applied for DACA for the first time or have submitted your renewal request by Tuesday, September 5, 2017, your application will continue to be processed.
  • All initial DACA requests filed after September 5, 2017 will be rejected.
  • If your work permit expires between September 5, 2017 and before March 5, 2018, you can renew your DACA now, but you must submit your application before October 5, 2017.
