Immigration Tip
November 2nd is the Withdrawal Deadline! 

If you do not believe you can continue your coursework, you may apply for a total withdrawal from the semester. Be mindful of university deadlines for withdrawal as well as refund policies.  Effective Fall 2020 the policy regarding University withdrawal changed and the deadline is no longer the last day of the semester/term.  The deadline to academically withdraw from all classes for Fall 2020 is Monday, November 2nd (5p.m.).  ISSS encourages you to allow time for this process and make decisions about withdrawal before the deadline.

Instructions for withdrawing:
Please note that if you withdraw from all coursework, ISSS must report your withdrawal and end your F-1 status by terminating your I-20 for authorized early withdrawal. Review more details on Withdrawal. ISSS will also assist you in the process to return to Miami University as soon as you are ready.
