OIA Warning: USCIS and Other Immigration Related Scams
SCAM ALERT - Government officials (either U.S. or international) will never call you! Beware scammers and imposters calling from recognized government numbers claiming you are in violation of your immigration status, social security status, etc., and asking you for money. Please review the information carefully and contact OIA any time you have any questions about your immigration statuses or requests you receive.
New SEVP Portal for Reporting Post-Completion OPT
On March 23, 2018, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) launched the SEVP Portal. The portal is a tool that allows F-1 students on approved post-completion optional practical training (OPT) to report changes to their home address, telephone number and employer information. The portal is accessible from both your mobile device and computer.
In a press release issued on Saturday, January 13, 2018, USCIS stated it will resume accepting and processing certain applications for deferred action under DACA. This change was made in response to a preliminary injunction issued in federal court last week.
