F-1 学生s are responsible to know and follow all immigration regulations. 无法维持你的状态, 或者遵守这些规定, may have very severe consequences for your ability to study, 寻找工作, 甚至不能留在美国. 查看下面的需求列表, and contact the International 学生 Advisor if you have any questions.

注册全日制课程

All students are required to make normal, full-time progress toward degree completion. If you feel that you cannot handle taking 12 credits during the semester consult with your International 学生 Advisor to see if you qualify for a 减少课程负担. DO NOT drop or withdraw from any classes if you will fall below 12 credits until talking with your Advisor about the consequences. 其他披露的信息包括:

  • Only 3 credits of these 12 may be taken as online courses. If you have at least 9 credits on campus you may take more than 3 credits online. 小心! 在线课程可能更难.
  • 所有课程的出勤都是强制性的.

保持你的入境证件有效

As an international student, you should have the following forms of identification:

I-20形式:

  • Always keep information on your I-20 valid and up to date.
  • Make sure the school name on your current I-20 is the same as the school you are currently attending.
  • Make sure your I-20 program end date does not expire. 你可以申请 项目扩展 如果你需要更多时间来完成你的学位.
  • Notify the International 学生 Advisor of any changes in financial information, name, 地址及专业.
  • 完成 申请I-20旅行签名 and bring it to the International 学生 Advisor at least 2 weeks prior to traveling outside the U.S.

护照: Always keep your passport valid at least 6 months into the future (passports can be extended while you are in the U.S. by contacting your home country’s embassy consulate).

i - 94卡: Your I-94 card is the white card that was stamped “F-1 D/S” and stapled in your passport when you entered the county. This is a very important document, as it is proof that you are in F-1 status. This card will be removed from your passport when you travel home, and you will receive a new one when you re-enter the U.S. (If you are traveling to Canada for less than 30 days, the I-94 should not be removed).

f - 1签证: 加拿大学生将不会有签证印章. If you do have an F-1 visa, before you plan to travel outside the U.S. and re-enter, you need to make sure that your visa is not expired. If it is expired, you need to renew your visa before re-entering the U.S. You do not need a valid visa in order to stay in the United States.

就业验收

DO NOT accept any off-campus employment without authorization from the International 学生 Advisor and/or US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Full-time students in valid F-1 Status may accept ON-Campus employment of no more than 20 hours per week (part-time) while school is in session, or may accept full-time employment ON-Campus during vacations.

学生s must request and have employment authorization approved BEFORE beginning to work off-campus! If a student would like to participate in a paid internship they should contact the International 学生 Advisor to apply for Curricular Practical Training. All other forms of Off-Campus employment require USCIS approval which may take up to 3 months to process. Please review our 就业机会 page to learn more about employment opportunities for F-1 学生s.

SEVIS:它是什么,它对你意味着什么!

SEVIS是学生的首字母缩写 & 交流访问者信息系统. It is an online tracking system for 国际学生 and their dependents. Through SEVIS colleges and universities enter and update various data regarding the 国际学生 who have been issued a Form I-20 by their institution.

这意味着, that the information about you and your F-1 visa status will be updated regularly in this SEVIS database. Therefore you must tell the International 学生 Advisor any time you: have a change of address, 更改名称, 专业变更, 希望降至全日制以下, or wish to engage in practical training or employment. The International 学生 Advisor must also enter information about illegal employment or any other violation of your F-1 status.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has complete access to your information via SEVIS. This department works with the college to assist you in properly maintaining your F-1 status. While Genesee Community College and the USCIS do our parts, you must also make sure that you are maintaining your F-1 status properly.
