International Student Records

IMPORTANT: Information regarding international student enrollment is reported to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) via the Student Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). It is the student’s responsibility to maintain legal non-immigrant visa status. International students are required to keep the international student advisor apprised, in writing, of any changes related to address or status within ten (10) days of change. Those in F-1 status must maintain a full course of study every fall and spring semester except during official school breaks or unless approved under a specific exception in advance by the international student advisor. Only the international student advisor has authority to authorize a reduced course load for immigration purposes.
