UPDATES

DRC Staff Assisting Students Remotely

The Glazer Family Dreamers Resource Center is continuing to take measures to maintain the health of our University community.

Consistent with the California Department of Public Health recommendations, our staff will be working remotely to continue to assist you.

The best way to reach us for assistance is by email at GFDRC@calstatela.edu.

Legal services to continue online and by telephone

In order to protect our CARECEN and Cal State LA community in light of the recent concerns related to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), we will not be holding in-person legal appointments.

However, CARECEN legal services at Cal State LA for students, faculty and staff continue to be available online and by telephone. CARECEN will continue to work on existing cases, as well as initial consultations.

We continue to encourage individuals whose DACA status expires in 2020 to schedule appointments to renew their status as soon as possible. Students may continue to schedule appointments by contacting the Glazer Family Dreamers Resource Center at GFDRC@calstatela.edu.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult period. We wish you safety, and rest assured we are still here to help with your immigration concerns.

Special DRC Message and Resources for Students

In this special message to students, Luz Borjon, Interim Director of the Dreamers Resource Center, outlines changes to DRC services and provides a list of resources to assist students and their families during the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) crisis.

Please read the COVID-19 Information and Resources.


The Erika J. Glazer Family Dreamers Resource Center (DRC) provides direct support to undocumented students through programs and services aimed at ensuring their academic, emotional and personal well-being.

The center provides emergency grants, assists with DACA renewals, provides confidential legal consultations with CARECEN legal staff and regularly engages students with workshops and programs.

DACA Renewals

Cal State LA helps students with DACA renewal fees and other application requirements. If interested, complete a Request for Payment/DACA Renewal Fee form at the Office of the Vice President for Student Life in SA-108. Bring your Student ID and Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

Please be aware that:

If your DACA status expires at any point during 2020 it is encouraged that you renew as soon as possible. Due to the current review of DACA by the Supreme Court, you are urged to schedule a consultation at the DRC with the CARECEN legal team.

If you have ever been a DACA status recipient, you may be able to renew your DACA status. If your DACA status was previously terminated, you may be able to file a new initial DACA request. You are urged to schedule a legal consultation with the CARECEN legal team to determine your renewal eligibility.

If you are interested in reapplying for DACA, we encourage you to speak with an attorney. The DRC provides free legal clinics every Thursday and free immigration consultations with CARECEN’s legal staff.

For information and eligibility requirements, visit the Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals(DACA). More DACA resources can be found at Immigrants Rising, United We Dream and National Immigration Law Center.

We recognize that these are challenging times. The Glazer Family Dreamers Resource Center is available to help.
