Nwirpeducationqualificationresourceguide7.19.12Deferred Action for DREAMers Education Qualification Resource Guide The new immigration policy announced on June 15, 2012 by President Obama provides an opportunity for some young undocumented people to obtain U.S.work permits and avoid deportation, at least temporarily.
In order to meet the criteria for this policy, individuals must be enrolled in school, have completed high school, or have attained a GED (General Education Development) certificate.1
There are, of course, other requirements that must be met (explained here) but, in addition to establishing those requirements, you will also need to gather documentation that shows that you completed high school, obtained a GED, or are currently enrolled in school.
If you are not currently enrolled in school, have not graduated from high school and have not obtained a GED certificate, you are not currently eligible to apply for deferred action even if you meet other criteria.
However, it is expected that individuals who can meet the education requirement at a later point will be able to apply once they meet the criteria.
You can, therefore, pursue a GED certificate now and apply for deferred action once you obtain the certificate (again, assuming you meet the other criteria for the policy).
Please note that many questions about this program are still up in the air and we expect that the government will provide additional guidance in the coming weeks.
As a reminder, there is as of yet no process for individuals who are not in deportation proceedings to apply for this program.
We urge you to monitor our website for additional information and for updates, and we urge you to speak to an attorney or qualified legal services provider before pursuing an application under this program once the process is announced.
Requesting School Records If you attended and/or graduated from a Washington State public high school you must request those records from the school district which you attended (WA school districts and contact information listed below).
Please note that, in addition to establishing that you are either currently in school or have completed high school, you will also need to show that you have been residing in the U.S.for five years prior to June 15, 2012.
We therefore recommend that you request records at least as far back as 2007.
If you have received a GED, you can request your transcript by contacting your local testing center (list of certified WA testing centers listed below) or through the Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges at this site.
Acquiring a GED A GED is a 5 subject exam which, if passed, certifies that you have the same content understanding as a High School graduate and serves as the equivalent of a High School diploma.
You are eligible to take the Washington State GED Exam if you fit one of the six following categories:
You cannot be younger than 16 years old.
2.You are 19 years old
or older and are not currently enrolled in a public or private high school program and have not graduated from high school or; 3.
