Immigration Tip
Enrollment Deadline for Legal Status
Next Wednesday, September 16 is the federal deadline for all F-1 students to be enrolled full-time (12 credits for undergrads and 9 credits for graduate students) unless you have requested and been approved for a reduced course load. You must remain enrolled full-time throughout the remainder of the semester in order to maintain your F-1 status. If you have questions or concerns about your enrollment, please contact ISSS at or schedule an appointment with an ISSS advisor

Keep in mind that you must continue participating in your classes so that your professors do not drop you from your courses. If you fall below full-time enrollment, your legal status will be in danger. Be sure to communicate with your professors if you are unclear about the expectations for your courses. Some courses previously identified as in-person or hybrid may be moving to fully online. Your professors should notify you of these changes. Be sure to check your Miami email and Canvas daily!
