DACA

What is DACA?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, (DACA), was established in June 2012 by the Obama Administration to provide administrative relief from deportation to specific individuals who applied for and received DACA status from the federal government.  The purpose of DACA was to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States as children (1) To receive protection from deportation; and (2) To receive a work permit. Eligible applicants were able to obtain DACA status for two years, which was subject to renewal.


As a DACA student, will I be allowed to stay enrolled at Solano Community College?

Yes. All students are welcome at Solano Community College as we have an open admissions policy.


I'm a DACA student and I receive the California Dream Act, will I still receive my financial aid if DACA ends?

 Yes, Please read about the Dream Act.
