Can I submit an application to renew DACA?

If you were granted DACA and continue to meet the guidelines for DACA, you may submit an application to renew your DACA.[2] You must also meet the following requirements in order to qualify for DACA renewal:

You must not have departed the U.S. on or after August 15, 2012, without first having been granted advance parole.[3]
You must have resided continuously in the U.S. from the time you submitted the initial request for DACA up until the present time.
You must not have been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more misdemeanors, and must not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

If you are considering applying for DACA for the first time, more information about the requirements and process is available at www.nilc.org/FAQdeferredactionyouth.html.
