End of Spring Semester
We are soon approaching the end of the Spring semester and here are
some important reminders regarding your 12 units completion SEVIS
requirement to be in good status, Travel request, Transferring out, and
Returning home. Please review each section thoroughly to make sure that you
take care of your SEVIS record accordingly. Failure to notify our office on any
of these issues may affect your immigration status and immigration record.
12 units SEVIS Requirement
As all of you know, SEVIS requires that you enrolled in 12 units at the
start of the semester and complete the 12 units with a letter grade in
order to avoid falling out of status (Termination of SEVIS record) at
end of the semester. It is your responsibility to log-in to your PeopleSoft
account through the semester to make sure that you are enrolled and
completing the required 12 units. A "W" and "Incomplete" unit(s)
does NOT count and may put you out of status. You must
receive a letter grade (A,B,C,D, or F), C/NC, P/NP to count the units.
For those of you who are currently under 12 units, you are out of status
and you are required to call 562-938-4745 to schedule an appointment with me (Nelly
Delgado) to discuss your current options for this violation.
