Abstract:Nearly 500,000 foreign citizens attend college in the United States on “F-1” or full-time student visas. The first in a two-part series on immigration and higher education by a distinguished practitioner in immigration law, this article comprehensively examines the obligations and responsibilities of students and schools regarding F-1 status. Failure to comply with regulations governing these visas, which can range from not carrying a sufficient course load or allowing registration at a participating college or university to lapse, to submitting application forms that are incomplete or late, can have serious consequences for school and student alike.
