California Community College Legal Services

Free immigration legal services are available to students, staff, and faculty affiliated with the California community colleges. Priority for services is given to undocumented students, staff, and faculty. The immigration legal service providers offering services at the 65 campuses have developed scheduling, intake, and reporting processes that ensure student information remains confidential and protected.

Though all legal providers offer legal consultations and basic immigration benefit application assistance, some providers may offer additional services. Basic immigration legal assistance includes:

  • Legal consultations to screen for immigration relief
  • Deferred Action from Childhood Arrivals (DACA) renewals
  • Family-based petitions
  • Naturalization/citizenship applications

Visit the California Community Colleges Undocumented Student Legal Services website to access these resources.
