Take action on your academic status

The International Students and Scholars Center at Arizona State University is here to assist you with your immigration-related needs that may be impacted by your academic status.

A recent audit of student records indicates that you may be facing an academic challenge that might make it difficult for you to continue your studies at ASU in the upcoming semester. Please note that your immigration status has not yet been impacted by your academic situation. You will have until the beginning of the spring 2024 semester to resolve your situation.

In order to maintain your immigration status, please review and follow the steps below as soon as possible and before the semester starts:

  1. Check your ASU email and My ASU for details about your current academic situation.
  2. Follow any instructions in your email or Priority Tasks in My ASU.
  3. Contact your academic department or advising unit about academic options to resolve your situation. Make sure you explore your academic options before contacting the ISSC.
  4. Contact the ISSC for advice about options available to you that will not negatively impact your immigration status.

Once you have followed these steps, you should have a plan for moving forward. Keep in mind, you will need to take action by the start of the next semester. Because of time concerns, we strongly encourage students to have a back-up plan in place in case your first plan does not work out.
