Deferred Action

I didn’t finish high school, can I still qualify for DACA?

  • If you didn’t finish high school, you can still qualify for DACA. You have to be enrolled in high school or a high school equivalency program.
  • However, there is no requirement that you complete the program prior to filing for DACA.

What’s a DACA, and what are the requirements?

  • DACA is “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” which allows individuals who are brought to the United States prior to their 16th birthday to apply for deferred action allowing them to obtain employment authorization.
  • This is very important for many younger individuals because employment authorization allows them to obtain a social security number and then a driver’s license.
  • To qualify, you can not have been brought here illegally. You had to arrive in the United States on or before June 15th, 2007, and you had to be in the United States as of June 15th, 2012.
  • One additional requirement is that you have to have either a high school degree or equivalency. It does not mean that you have to have completed the program; you must just be enrolled.
