Important Update Regarding DACA
Due to a court injunction, USCIS has resumed accepting DACA renewal applications. Students considering whether to renew DACA can contact us or an immigration attorney. We are also currently accepting applications for the Dream Fund. In addition to other purposes, we will provide funding to help students pay the DACA refilling fee.
Immigration Policy Updates
We have resources to avoid scams aimed at immigrants and international students.
Immigration Resources by Campus
We updated our resource section with services available to all UMN campuses.
“Extreme Vetting” for U.S. Visas
Embassies and consulates can now request much more information from visa applicants. We are interested in learning how this might affect all UMN campuses. If you are willing to share, use this form to report your visa application experience.
Tracking Experiences with Customs and Border Protection
Immigrants, international students and scholars, and U.S. citizens can share their experience with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) when entering the United States. Experiences with Customs and Border Protection is a voluntary form to help us understand how students and staff might be affected by CBP inspections, including searches of mobile devices.
