DACA Renewal Reminder

"Students currently in DACA status should consider filing for renewal this Fall 2019. DACA recipients can file for a renewal even if their current DACA expires more than 150 days into the future. While the future of DACA and The Dream and Promise Act of 2019 remain uncertain, upcoming developments in DACA-related court cases in late 2019 through 2020 may make it harder or impossible to renew DACA in the future. The window currently remains open to renew DACA for a two-year period.”

Note: UConn cannot provide individual advice about whether it makes sense to file a DACA renewal in individual circumstances.
