Direct immigration legal services are available free of charge to
CSU students and employees. Attorneys and paralegals are available to assist students with general consultations, DACA renewals and general assistance in filling out forms such as family-based petitions. Priority will be given to undocumented students, staff and faculty.
Funding for the services is provided by the
California Department of Social Services (CDSS). The project funds initially were provided through a one-time allocation of $7 million from the 2018 Budget Act to CDSS to implement direct immigration legal service programs on CSU campuses. Recurring funds were awarded in the 2019-20 budget.
These agencies will provide immigration legal services at CSU campuses in specific geographic areas and will create scheduling, intake and reporting processes to ensure participating campuses are aligned. Services offered by region will vary for each provider.
