Dear Currently Enrolled Scholars,
First, an important note. It is imperative that you renew your DACA on time. USCIS requests that you submit your DACA renewal 150 days before it expires. A year lapse of your DACA (meaning your DACA has expired for a year or more) will deem your request an initial request. USCIS is not permitted to approve initial DACA requests or accompanying applications for employment authorization while the court order from the Southern District of Texas remains in effect. So please renew your DACA as soon as you can.
Did you miss the Mission Asset Fund (MAF) presentation where it tells you how you can receive the $495 fee to renew your DACA? You can now watch the recording here: https://missionassetfund-org.zoom.us/…/TPwetxX5ZKhe9Sao…

TIP: Submit your MAF application two weeks before 150 days when your DACA is set to expire. Send in your DACA renewal application with the MAF check between 150 and 120 days before your DACA expires.
