Maintaining Status

International Students @ Festival of Nations

While you are pursuing a degree at Barry University, you must maintain your F-1 student visa status and comply with all United States Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) regulations under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Maintaining status means keeping all of your immigration documents current/updated as well as attending the required amount of classes at the institution you are authorized to attend. Failure to maintain status may result in penalties that will negatively affect your ability to continue your studies and/or remain in the U.S. and/or apply for future immigration benefits.
