Even if they’re only attending for one summer, immigrant students enrolled at California Community Colleges will have access to free immigration legal services through the Higher Education Legal Services Project. What’s more, anyone getting naturalization support through this project can also get their filing fees covered!

Here’s a summary of the services offered:

  • Legal consultations to screen for immigration relief

  • Family-based petitions
  • Naturalization/citizenship applications
  • Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS)
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) renewals

  • Advance parole

The Higher Education Legal Services Project is a collaborative effort between the California Community Colleges (CCC), the Foundation for CCC, the California State University (CSU), and the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) to connect immigrant students at CCCs and CSUs with trusted legal services providers so that they can navigate their immigration journey and continue to excel in their education. CCC students (including students with dual enrollment, adult learners, and students taking non-credit courses), their immediate family members, faculty, and staff can access this service through
