Immigration Clinic Logo

Meet Mariana Rodriguez — UNLV Graduate, Engineer, and Dreamer

The designer of the Immigration Clinic’s logo is a UNLV mechanical engineering student, Mariana Rodriguez. She was born in Zacatecas, Mexico, and raised in Nevada. When she applied to college she was initially asked to pay higher fees as an international student, even though she’s lived in Las Vegas since she was five. It’s because of students like her that the clinic launched our university legal services project.


ULS offers FREE OF CHARGE immigration legal advice and representation to:

  • CURRENT UNLV students;
  • Family members living in the same household as the current UNLV student; and,
  • Current UNLV student’s parents, adult children, and step-children;
  • UNLV Staff, if their individual income meets program requirements.

This project is supported by a grant from UNLV, and builds on the UNLV Immigration Clinic’s tradition of informally helping members of the university community. This project combines outreach to the university community, direct legal services, and problem-solving to address common problems facing the UNLV communities.

ULS offers FREE OF CHARGE assistance with DACA renewal application preparation for any Nevada resident, with priority given to UNLV students and staff. While our assistance is free, there is no waiver available for the government (USCIS) fee for the DACA application, so beneficiaries must pay the $495.00 application fee.

Please understand, there is limited capacity for this service, and not all people who are eligible may receive services.

Please fill out the following appropriate form, depending on the assistance needed:
