REINSTATEMENT TO STUDENT (F-1) OR EXCHANGE VISITOR (J-1) IMMIGRATION STATUS
If you violate the terms of your status, you must apply for "Reinstatement to Status" with INS for F-1’s or USIA for J-1’s. Unfortunately, there are serious consequences if this happens, so visit the International Student Services office as soon as possible if you believe you are out of status. It is very important to make a Reinstatement application immediately. We will help you with each step of this process.
