Students are responsible for maintaining their immigration status. Understand your immigration responsibilities and maintain your status. Failure to do so may result in a loss of status. The best resources to assist you in maintaining your status are this website and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center International Student Services (OUHSC ISS) office, at 941 Stanton L. Young Blvd. BSE 200, Oklahoma City, OK 73104. As the institution that issued your supporting immigration documents, OUHSC has legal obligations that are met by the OUHSC ISS office. F-1 and J-1 students are in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), a secure federal database where we create immigration documents and maintain student records. The OUHSC ISS office must regularly report your enrollment status, completion of program, employment recommendations, and failure to maintain status.
- Allow ten business days for the OUHSC ISS office to process your requests.
- Carry current Passport, VISA, I-20, I-94, and financial support documentation when you travel abroad.
- Do not go to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) district office with questions. The local USCIS office cannot answer your walk-in questions.
- If you have questions about your immigration status, ask the OUHSC ISS office. We are here to help and advise you.
