Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Guidance for Students

Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Process
On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several key guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and would then be eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a discretionary determination to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Deferred action does not provide an individual with lawful status.

Visit the U.S. Citizenship and Services website for more information.

WSU students with deffered action status are eligible to participate in our program and should follow the same steps as U.S. citizens to begin the process.
