Maintaining F-1 Visa Status

U.S. law requires currently enrolled international students with an F-1 visa to maintain their F-1 student status.

Requirements to Maintain F-1 Status

As an international student, you must maintain your F-1 student status to stay enrolled in AACC. The requirements for maintaining F-1 visa status are extensive. We recommend you review the document below carefully to make sure you are in compliance. It is your responsibility to maintain legal status and abide by the regulations. The college must report updated information and violations of student status to the U.S. government using the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), an electronic tracking system, within 21 days of violation. 

Carefully read the document below and contact the international admissions specialist or director of admissions if you have any questions.
