Maintaining F-1 Status

F-1 students are responsible for maintaining lawful status while present in the U.S.  

The International Student Services office is here to assist and advise students of the requirements of F-1 Status, however, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they adhere to these requirements and regulations and do not lose lawful status while in the U.S. 

Students should carefully review the information provided by the ISS office to ensure they are in compliance with all requirements and regulations of F-1 Student Status.
