Recently, the federal government enacted immigration changes that can have a detrimental effect on WVU's international students and scholars. Most notably, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has fundamentally changed its policy regarding triggers of unlawful presence. This is a major change that WVU’s international students, scholars and hiring/sponsoring departments should be informed about.
The Office of Global Affairs will hold an immigration information session on at the WVU Health Sciences Center to accommodate the international students, scholars and hiring/sponsoring departments at the HSC.
The event will be held on Wed., Sept. 12 from 4 to 6 p.m. in Room 1905 Health Sciences North. Please contact International Students and Scholars Services in the Office of Global Affairs with questions or for more information.
