Disclaimer: while United We Dream is one of the most trusted organizations when it comes to DACA, we are not attorneys and the information provided here is simply for informational purposes not legal advice.

Below are step-by-step instructions put together by United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led network in the country, that will help you get started on renewing your DACA application.
This will give you a starting point and allow you to make sure that all the information you put on your new application remains consistent with your previous application. This is important. Use the copy of your previous DACA Renewal application to guide you on how to fill out all fields on the forms. If you do not have a copy of your previous application, thoroughly read the instructions that come with the applications and fill it out to the best of your knowledge.
Tip: Fill out the form digitally on your computer to ensure legibility. If you cannot fill it out on your computer, make sure use a black ink pen and write legibly. A cover letter helps the USCIS agent reviewing your application to easily see what they are about to review right at a glance.
Check out our cover letter template to give you a starting point. The key feature of the cover letter is the checklist of items that you need to include. Aim to include copies of all the things on our template with the exception of the copy of the Advance Parole stamp. Only include a copy of the Advance Parole stamp if you traveled outside of the U. Department of Homeland Security. This will cover your biometric and processing fees.
Note: Do not send cash or personal checks. You can purchase money orders at your local U. Post Office, convenience store, grocery store, or bank. Like we said United We Dream has your back.
We recommend that your application packet be in the following order to make it easier for review:. Where should you send your application? This depends on your location. USCIS has a quick reference guide on where to send your application based on your location.
Tip: Do not staple your application together. Instead use paper clips. Tip: We also advise that you mail using priority shipping that includes a tracking number so you know exactly when the application is received.
