ACC respects, understands, and embraces the differences and similarities among our students, staff, faculty and the community we proudly serve. We understand that some of our students may have questions about immigration matters affecting them, their families or loved ones and need access to resources. Our College Diversity and Inclusivity Project has compiled a list of resources to help.
- The Immigrant Legal Resource Center
- Specifically, the document entitled “What Do I Need to Know if the DACA Program Ends” which includes information on how changes to DACA can and cannot affect work permits, social security numbers, and driver’s licenses; in additional there is a “Know Your Rights” card applicable to both documented and undocumented persons.
- This document is also available in Spanish and in Chinese
