Maintaining Status

It is the responsibility of each F-1 and J-1 international student to understand and be familiar with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations governing their immigration status. The Office of Global Services (OGS) is the primary resource for learning about rights and responsibilities as an international student at Georgetown University. Review the International Student & Scholar Online Pre-Arrival Orientation in Canvas and explore our website to familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations below. If you have questions about immigration regulations, cultural adjustment, or resources available to you as an international student, please contact your dedicated IS Advisor.
