Immigration support is a critical service that ISSS offers to non-immigrant students and their academic units at KU. ISSS advisors offer an accurate and thorough understanding of immigration regulations that govern F-1, J-1 and numerous status categories to more than 2,000 international students from more than 100 countries currently enrolled. Members of the campus community are invited to direct immigration-related inquiries to ISSS at any time.
F-1 Students and J-1 Students
Immigration related services include, but are not limited to the following areas:
- I-20 and DS-2019 Extensions
- On/Off-Campus Employment
- Travel Issues
- School Transfer In/Out Procedures
- Dependent Information
- Replacement/Duplicate I-20s and DS-2019s
- Reinstatement to Legal Status
- Change of Status Applications
Other Statuses (i.e. F-2, H-1B, L-2, E-2, etc.)
About 5% of international students at KU are in some status other than F-1 or J-1. ISSS provides immigration advising for all non-immigrant categories. Because of the uniqueness of each category, details are not provided here. For specific questions please feel welcome to make an appoinment or come in during walk in hours.
