Keeping Your Stay in the US Legal

  • Have a valid passport. If expired, contact your home country consul in New York or Washington D.C.
  • Have a Lehman College SEVIS I-20 that reflects current information.
  • Register for a full-time course of study each semester.
    • Graduate: 9 credits
    • Undergraduate: 12 credits
  • Complete your degree program by the date stated on your I-20. If you are unable to complete your degree by that date, see the International Student Services Coordinator.
  • If you change majors or program levels, you must get a new I-20.
  • If you have attended another school (in the U.S.) before transferring to Lehman College, you will need to complete the USCIS transfer process by getting a new SEVIS I-20 from Lehman College.
  • On-campus employment must be authorized by the International Student Services Coordinator.
  • Off-campus employment is NOT allowed unless recommended by the International Student Services Coordinator and authorized by Immigration.
  • If you travel outside the U.S., have your I-20 signed by the International Student Services Coordinator for reentry.
  • A change of address must be done through the International Student Service's Office. Changing your address with the Registrar’s Office will not satisfy Immigration requirements.
