On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that people who come to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. Along with deferred action, participants were granted a work permit. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status, however, students with Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are able to attend college and may be eligible for California residency. At College of the Canyons, we have a residency specialist ready to assist you with your residency for tuition purposes. Please contact with the documentation below so we may assist you in getting starting at College of the Canyons.
