International Students - Immigration & Visas for International Students
As an international student you 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 (SEVP) 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. You will find the basic rules for F-1 and J-1 students at the links on this page but if you need more information please contact ISSS to make an appointment with an adviser.
To make an appointment with an adviser call (207) 581-3423.
You can also email questions to Immigration.Services@umit.maine.edu. Please do not use this email address to schedule appointments.
