DACA stands for "deferred action for childhood arrivals." It allows immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and who meet certain other requirements to apply for two years' protection from deportation and a work permit. DACA can be renewed after its initial two- or three-year grant. You may apply for deferred action status if you:

  1. had not yet turned age 16 when you came to the U.S. to live
  2. have continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2010
  3. were physically present in the U.S. on June 15, 2012, and also at the time you apply for deferred action
  4. either entered the U.S. without inspection before June 15, 2012, or if you entered with inspection, your lawful immigration status had expired as of June 15, 2012
  5. are either in school now, have graduated or earned a certificate of completion from an accredited high school, have obtained a GED certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States, and
  6. have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors; and do not otherwise present a threat to U.S. national security or public safety (such as by being a member of a gang).
