It is vitally important that you maintain your immigration record while you are here in the US either as a student or a dependent of a student or scholar. By continuing to keep your immigration record valid and accurate you allow yourself to continue to be eligible for immigration benefits in the future such as employment authorization, permanent residency, and status changes to different visa types. Please review the information that applies to you very carefully and be sure to stop in for Open Advising if you have any questions. You can always email us, too, if swinging by the office isn’t convenient.
