Important E-mail from Nelly Delgado
Greetings International Students,
Happy New Years and welcome back to our Spring 2013 semester! We are very excited about the new students that have arrived to study here at Long Beach City College.
EVERYONE SHOULD BE ENROLLED IN 12 UNITS BY NOW. Remember, wait list classes do not count as enrolled units because wait list classes are not guaranteed units. This includes wait list for late starting classes. Failure to be enrolled in 12 units by Monday, February 18th will cause your SEVIS record to be terminated, falling out of status for failure to enroll if you have zero units or for unauthorized drop below full time if you are enrolled under 12 units. If needed, you may request for a concurrent enrollment permission letter from Judy if you need to find other units (maximum 6) at another school in order to meet the 12 unit requirement.
DISCONTINUED PROGRAMS: If your program major was on the list of discontinued programs at LBCC you must meet with your International Counselor, Judy Oh, immediately to discuss your program options. Call 562-938-4560 to schedule your appointment NOW.
TIME FOR OTHER IMPORTANT DEADLINES:
FEBRUARY 18TH: Last Day to Use your Permission Numbers to Register:
Do NOT wait until the last minute. We are not responsible for any technical difficulties this is why I recommend that you register/add the class(es) before the 18th if you currently have the permission number available. All Student Services Departments (Admissions and Cashier's office) close at 12pm on Fridays. You must take care of any balance due online or in person with the Cashier's office on time or the system may not allow you to add any classes. Permission numbers will not be valid after this date!!!!
FEBRUARY 15TH: HEALTH INSURANCE (Spring 2013):
Those of you who have not purchased your Spring 2013 Medical Insurance, MUST do so by and NO later than Friday, February 15th or you will continue to have a HOLD in your PeopleSoft record. If you have paid for your Spring insurance, you should not have a hold. Make sure to click on "details" if PeopleSoft indicates that you have a hold preventing you from registrating to verify which department has put a hold on your record.
FEBRUARY 15TH: WAS FALL 2012 YOUR LAST SEMESTER AND YOU ARE TRANSFERRING OUT OR YOU HAVE DEPARTED THE U.S. AND RETURNED HOME????
Some students are still not enrolled in any units (zero). If you are not enrolled because you will NOT be attending LBCC this semester you MUST CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY and either DEPART THE U.S. OR TRANSFER TO ANOTHER SCHOOL within the 60 days SEVIS regulation grace period.

Failure to do so is in violation of status [8.C.F.R.214.2(f)(5)(iv)]) IF I DO NOT RECEIVE ANY OF THESE DOCUMENTS AND YOU ARE NOT ENROLLED IN 12 UNITS BY MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH YOUR SEVIS RECORD WILL TERMINATE FOR FAILURE TO ENROLL.
