Maintaining Status

It is important that F-1 students meet all the requirements listed below to maintain their F-1 Student status.

  • Enroll as a full-time student for the Fall and Spring semester. A full-time course load is equivalent to 12 credits or more per semester. F-1 Students are limited to 3 credits or one class per semester in a Distance Learning (online) format counting toward their full course load.
  • Continuously attend classes and do not exceed the number of unexcused absences determined by the professor.
  • Check-in with the International Student Services Coordinator within 10 days of the beginning of each semester.
  • Notify the International Student Services Coordinator every time you travel abroad and obtain a travel signature. Fill out the Travel Notification Form.

  • Obtain authorization before starting any type of employment in the United States.
  • Report any change in your local address within 10 days of moving to the International Student Services Coordinator. Fill out a Change of Address Form.

  • Receive authorization for Reduced Course Load before engaging in part-time studies.
