What are the responsibilities of international students in the U.S.?

The U.S. government requires the INS to have strict regulations for international students.  Disregarding federal regulations or failing to abide by them can potentially lead to the termination of status for a student. Therefore, it is crucial that students keep their passports and other documents current and in order.  It is also necessary that students notify the OIE of any and all changes to their academic status and contact information. 

The most important regulations to remember are the following: 

  1. I-94 form attached to their passport; and

  2. I-20 form showing that they are authorized by the INS to attend school in the United States
