International Students - Immigration & Visas for International Students
International students are required to “maintain status” at all times. Maintaining status means that you are following the rules and regulations of the Student and Exchange Visitor Program which is a part of the US Department of Homeland Security. The ISSS staff can advise you on what the rules and regulations are and how to follow them. The basic rules for F-1 and J-1 students can be found at the links on this page but there will be times when a student needs more detailed inforation. Please contact ISSS if you have a question or need help.
