International Student and Scholar Services is able to provide general guidance. However, any advice provided to you by the Center for Global Education should not be construed as legal advice. Additionally, due to the fluid nature of governmental interpretation, government agencies such as USCIS/ICE/CBP may change their interpretation of immigration laws/regulations and eligibility requirements for benefits, at any time. We will do our best to provide the most current guidance. Each case is fact-specific and it is advised that you contact an experienced immigration attorney if you have questions regarding your situation.
