Immigration Assistance

Immigration Assistance

Sonoma State's DREAM Center, located in Schulz 1119, provides a safe space for undocumented students where they receive academic, personal, and professional guidance in order to matriculate and graduate.

Beginning September 19, 2019, free legal services will be available on our campus for undocumented students, as well as students and staff with legal immigration questions. The primary types of legal services to be offered are general consultations, DACA renewals, and general assistance in filling out forms such as family-based petitions. 

These services are made possible due to the support of the State of California in collaboration with the Department of Social Services and the CSU Chancellor's Office. Sonoma State has been chosen to be the hub for the Northern California Region (CSU Chico, Humboldt State, and Sacramento State Universities) and will have a full-time immigration attorney and paralegal on-site. Both are employed by the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA). While the campus is in remote operations, you can still receive legal assistance.

2. I may not be able to control this situation, but I am in charge of how I respond.

3. I haven't figure this out...yet.

4. This challenge is here to teach me something.

5. All I need to do is take it one step at a time. Breathe. And do the next right thing.
