Message from Nelly Delgado
I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME BACK ALL OF OUR RETURNING STUDENTS AND WELCOME OUR 34 NEW STUDENTS WHO ARE STARTING THEIR ACADEMIC CAREER AT LBCC THIS SEMESTER!
I hope your second week of classes is going well. Here are some IMPORTANT reminders about the 12 units/full course of enrollment, health insurance requirement among other things. I have just completed the first review of all international students'' academic enrollment records and I still see some students enrolled in LESS THAN 12 units. IF YOU ARE NOT ENROLLED IN 12 UNITS BY MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9TH YOUR SEVIS RECORD WILL BE TERMINATED.
REMEMBER, it is an immigration regulation that you MUST be enroll in 12 units within the first two weeks of classes and complete 12 units each Fall/Spring semester.
Take the following steps to insure 12 units enrollment:
1. If you have been wait-listed for a class, you must get a permission number, register in the class and pay tuition to secure your enrollment.
2. You may request authorization from Judy Oh to take classes at another college if you are eligible. (You must make an appointment with Judy to get the permission letter.) NOTE: YOU CAN NOT ENROLL AT ANOTHER SCHOOL WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION. A NEW PERMISSION LETTER IS REQUIRED EVERY SEMESTER!! Failure to comply with this policy may jeopardize your immigration status.
3. If you are NO longer attending LBCC, or will not be able to enroll in 12 units for some other reason you MUST let me know IMMEDIATELY and no later than Monday, September 9th or your SEVIS record will be Terminated for failure to enroll. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your situation. No second reminder will be sent.
All newly admitted international students (Fall 2013) must make an appointment to meet with Judy Oh, International Academic Counselor, by September 26th to develop a complete Education Plan! Please call the Counseling Department at 562-938-4560, or stop by their office in room A1111 to schedule your appointment in person. Identify yourself as International Student and request your appointment with Judy Oh.
Please note that I will be conducting the final review of academic enrollment records on Monday, September 9th and begin reporting violation of status to Immigration Services (SEVIS Termination). Once your record is terminated it cannot be changed back. You will be required to apply for reinstatement for failure to enroll or unauthorized below 12 unit enrollment violation. If you have been given permission by Judy to enroll in another school to complete 12 units you MUST email me a copy of your current enrollment no later than Monday, September 9th showing your full name, school name, class title, and total units enrolled. At the end of the semester you must email me a copy of your final grade report for the units.
FALL 2013 HEALTH INSURANCE REQUIREMENT:
In addition, this is the final chance to purchase health insurance. Please forward proof of your insurance purchase, if you have not already done so, to ISP IMMEDIATELY! For those who have paid your insurance, we were just notified that all insurance cards are being mailed out this week. If you do not receive your card by Monday, September 16th, contact Lori at email@example.com If you have changed your address make sure to let the ISP and Student Insurance know immediately.
