Immigration Alerts

The Office of International Studies and Programs monitors updates and changes to immigration regulations and policies for international students and scholars. We ask that students, scholars, and departments check back frequently for most recent updates and guidance. OISP will communicate significant updates and changes via email to students and scholars.

On August 9, 2018, USCIS announced a change in how it will calculate unlawful presence for nonresidents, including F and J students, scholars, and dependents.

Travel Ban 3.0 is currently in effect. On September 24, 2017, President Trump issued Proclamation 9645 (Travel Ban 3.0) pursuant to Section 2(e) of Executive Order 13780. The travel ban limits entry to the United States by certain citizens of seven countries: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen, and Somalia.

To discuss how these policies might affect you, schedule an appointment with International Student and Scholar Services at 509-963-3612.
