Immigration Strategies for International Students

1h 3m

Created on October 11, 2018



The availability of non-immigrant visas enabling foreign national students to study in the United States has long been a key component of the U.S. immigration system. Often, student visas are the mechanism by which our clients first enter the U.S., and they provide a valuable option for those already present. However, the role of the attorney is minimized in this process, and replaced by institutions with which attorneys have little-to-no access. 

This course will provide a unique perspective for attorneys seeking a better understanding of not only the ins-and-outs of various non-immigrant visas for foreign national students, but also the concerns and practical realities of both students and the schools and programs with which they interact.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine the primary visa categories for foreign national students to study in the United States
  2. Obtain an understanding of the student and institutional perspective to help align the objectives of clients, counsel, schools, and programs
  3. Discuss new policy changes that impact decision making when considering whether to extend or change status
