The Trump administration announced, Tuesday, that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals will be rescinded.

The White House will give Congress six months to decide whether the program, which protects students nationwide, will be replaced.

Since 2012, DACA has protected many students and offered the chance for undocumented children brought to the US to pursue education and opportunity. Its removal means that many recipients could begin losing status by March 5, 2018.

Chico State offers its resources and support in this decision for all students.

“Our undocumented students’ enrollment at the University, tuition, or financial aid are not impacted by the change, ” President Gayle Hutchinson stated in a campus wide email.

“CSU enrollment and tuition policies are not based on DACA status and, therefore, are not impacted. The state funding available under the California Dream Act will not change.”

Students can visit the Dream Student Support Team and Dream Center for financial aid resources. The centers provides tools for advocacy and trainings for immigration issues. The Cross Cultural Leadership Center also offers student support.

In a press release, CSU Chancellor Timothy White urged all DACA students to learn more about their rights and this decision’s effect on the CSU education website.

“Our mission to provide excellent educational opportunities to all Californians shall not waver”, White said.
