OCC Student Equity Wants You To Know:

DACA renewals are still open. If you've had DACA before we recommend that you renew now. If you've never applied to DACA before we recommend you seek legal consultation before applying for the first time. 

OCC Students Receive Free Immigration Services from CHIRLA:

DACA Virtual Clinic Every Wednesday @ 3:00 pm:

Students who require assistance with renewing their current DACA work permit may sign up through the link below. They will then be contacted by a CHIRLA caseworker within 48 hours to begin the process and go over the required documentation for their application. We ask that students have a copy of their past renewal readily available.

DACA Funding Opportunities:

CHIRLA can assist students with the $495 DACA fee for those who are community college students in California. In addition, there is funding for individuals who live in the city of Los Angeles. If students are interested, they should sign up for our services and inquire when speaking to the CHIRLA staff member.

CHIRLA Representative of the Day:

CHIRLA Student Legal Services is launching a new service with our partner schools called CHIRLA Representative of the Day. If students would like general information, clarifications, case updates, or resources, students may log into this zoom link and have these matters answered by an attorney or a CHIRLA accredited representative. This service will be available to all students every Friday from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. 

One-on-One Immigration Consultations:

If students are unable to attend any of our virtual legal clinics or want to have their immigration matters discussed in an individual setting, students may sign up for an scheduled virtual legal consultation to speak with an attorney or CHIRLA accredited representative.

To schedule an appointment visit: https://legal.chirla.org/. Students must select OCC as the school they attend when prompted to do so.
