DACA Students

There are a number of resources to help undocumented students meet their educational goals at Chemeketa.

What is DACA?

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a status given to certain students who entered the United States from another country before their 16th birthday (and before 2007), have been continually residing and attending school in the U.S. and have graduated high school or attained their GED. If you are undocumented or have DACA or a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), you do not qualify for federal financial aid. However, Chemeketa offers resources and opportunities to help you meet your education goals and expenses.
