Deferred Action Application Assistance Events

Information for non citizens


The following is CUNY Citizenship Now's last CUNY campus based events for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

If you believe that you meet the requirements to request Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (see below), you may register for the event listed below.  Once you have RSVP'd, you will receive an appointment confirmation* and additional information regarding the documents you will need to bring to the event. We ask you to please make sure to take the time to fill out all the documents to the best of your ability before the event. That way, we can better assist you, and help make sure that you walk out of the event with an application ready to mail to USCIS.

If you are not able to register for this event you can make an appointment at one of our centers.  To avoid long waiting times we suggest that you contact one of the New York City Council Member centers.

Please register for the event in order to receive services.
