On Sept. 5 the Trump administration announced it would end the DACA program, effective March 5, 2018. UC strongly disagrees with the decision and is working to protect those who are affected.

UCSF Human Resources leadership has a plan to ensure any individual who may be impacted by the DACA decision has the needed information and resources. Please share the information below widely with your departments and units to help make this information accessible to anyone who might be impacted.

For UC community members impacted by this decision, there are some urgent actions you may need to take by Oct. 5, 2017, and some critical information to know.

  • The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will no longer accept new DACA applications.
  • Individuals who currently have DACA, and whose work authorization card is set to expire between Sept. 5, 2017, and March 5, 2018, may apply for a two-year renewal of the card no later than Oct. 5, 2017. It is critical to act quickly if you have a DACA work authorization card which expires in the next six months.
  • Individuals who are eligible to apply for a renewal during the limited window have the opportunity to obtain continued legal authorization to work and protection against deportation.

Impacted individuals are encouraged to discuss your individual circumstances with immigration counsel.

More information on the renewal process can be found here.
