September 14, 2017 – Chancellor’s Message on DACA Renewal

To: Campus Community

From: President Gayle E. Hutchinson

I urge all DACA students and employees to read the following message released today from California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White. I stand with the Chancellor in highlighting the narrow window of opportunity for DACA recipients whose status expires on or March 5, 2018 to complete and submit a DACA renewal application before Oct. 5, 2017. Please find the Chancellor’s message and information about the renewal process. Do not delay. This may be the last opportunity to obtain an additional two years of deportation protection and legal work authorization.

Dear CSU DACA students and employees:

I strongly urge all DACA recipients whose status expires on or before March 5, 2018, to complete and submit a DACA renewal application before October 5, 2017. Renewal of your DACA status may be your only opportunity to obtain an additional two years of deportation protection and legal work authorization.

DO NOT DELAY.

Financial assistance may be available to help cover the $495 renewal application fee.

I strongly disagree and formally denounce the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the DACA program. The program will be phased out as each recipient’s DACA status and employment authorization document (EAD) expire. Again, some DACA recipients will be allowed to renew their application for an additional two years but must act immediately.

I encourage you to review the information below and share with others.

Sincerely,
Timothy P. White, Chancellor
