As an international student in the United States, you are here on a non-immigrant visa in either the F or the J category.  As an F or J visa holder, you must adhere to the regulations and laws that define both your benefits and restrictions.  In this section, you will learn about your documents, how to obtain them and how to maintain them.  You will also learn how to maintain your F or J status while studying at the University.

Why Is It Important to Maintain My Immigration Status?

Properly following immigration regulation will ensure that you remain in status. This will enable you to successfully accomplish your academic and professional pursuits while you are in the United States. ISS Advisors are here to help you understand and maintain your status.
