This is to remind the University community that, consistent with federal regulations affecting the employment of nonimmigrant individuals, any University department that employs nonimmigrant employees is required to provide the Office of International Services with updated information on each nonimmigrant employee, including, but not limited to, the following:
Beginning of employment as stipulated to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and/or the United States Department of State (DOS);
Deferral of employment as stipulated to the USCIS and/or the DOS;
Amendment of employment as stipulated to the USCIS and/or the DOS;
Termination of employment as stipulated to the USCIS and/or the DOS;
Current residential address in the United States;
Change of current residential address in the United States; in addition to reporting a new address to this office and to the Office of Human Resources/Payroll Management, nonimmigrant employees are required to submit a Change of Address Form (Form AR-11) to the USCIS no later than ten (10) days after each address change]; and
Confirmation, for individuals in Exchange Visitor (J-1) status, of purchase of major medical health insurance for entire period of authorized employment.
Failure to inform the Office of International Services in a timely manner of any of these items may have a serious negative impact on both the individual nonimmigrant employee in particular and the University as a whole.
