This webpage contains links to resources for those affected by changes to the federal government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. It also contains an archive of President Gitenstein’s messages on the issue detailing her advocacy efforts as well as links to statements issued or co-signed by her.

While the college cannot provide legal advice to individuals about DACA, students with general questions may contact Student Affairs at 609-771-2201. Employees may contact the Office of Human Resources at 609-771-2282.


Feeling distressed about DACA?

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides confidential and private counseling. CAPS will not report who uses their services or the content of therapy sessions without an individual student’s permission. Services are “pre-paid” as part of your tuition and fees and accessible to all students.

The Rutgers Immigrant Justice Clinic

The Rutgers Immigrant Justice Clinic is hosting two events that include a presentation and question and answer session and free assistance with renewal applications for eligible DACA beneficiaries (which applications will not be accepted by the federal government after October 5, 2017).
