International Advising

International Advising within OIAP serves current UHCL sponsored international students, dependents, and scholars. All immigration related services such as the processing of immigration documents, government reporting, status letters, change of status, and work authorization are handled by OIAP.

OIAP provides immigration workshops and seminars throughout the academic year to assist students and scholars in maintaining their immigration status. As a service to our international students and scholars, monthly emails are sent containing important immigration updates and reminders on maintaining lawful immigration status in the U.S.

Any questions about full-time enrollment requirements, restrictions on working in the U.S., traveling outside the U.S., and other rules and responsibilities connected to your immigration status should always be addressed to International Advising directly at
