Despite the many challenges facing higher education in the United States, America remains the destination of choice for both undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world. In fact, it’s fair to say that U.S. colleges and universities comprise one of the few cutting edge enterprises in which America remains the world-beater. Nearly all universities, public and private, as well as many community colleges, seek their share of the global student market. While successful recruitment of international students is both financially rewarding and pedagogically desirable, the legal and administrative challenges can be daunting.
Since September 11, 2001, the federal government has paid special attention to students coming to our campuses from abroad. The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), administered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) uses the SEVIS website to track international students from their admission to our institutions to their graduation … and beyond. Attaining and maintaining SEVIS certification is essential to admitting such students. And understanding the intricacies of SEVIS is essential to retaining certification.
International student and faculty exchange programs under the auspices of the U.S. Department of State also require SEVIS certification. Additionally, the J-1 visa is a broad umbrella that covers a wide range of international relationships, including student exchange programs and guest faculty from abroad. Biannual recertification with the state department is yet another burden upon the school which wants to participate in such programs.
Keeping our international students in F-1 or J-1 status requires a solid understanding of their rights and obligations. Particularly complex are the rules regarding international students’ right to work. Get this right, and your school can offer vibrant internship programs and robust post-graduate career-placement programs. Get it wrong, and your students can fall out of status and be open to deportation.
Please join Dr. Jim Castagnera, attorney at law, associate provost, Rider University for a step-by-step analysis of the practical and legal requirements associated with successfully managing your international student population.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:
  • Whether it’s legal to admit undocumented students
  • Whether public universities may accord in-state tuition rates to undocumented state residents
  • The fundamentals of the F-1 and J-1 visa statuses
  • What an applicant for admission from abroad must demonstrate financially
  • What constitutes full-time status and what are the exceptions to this requirement
  • When and where an international student work can work
  • What are international students’ options after graduation and how you can help them achieve their career goals
  • SEVIS certification requirements
  • Whether it’s necessary to protect your institution’s intellectual property from misappropriation by international students and post-docs
  • AND MUCH MORE!
