Visa regulations require that students enroll full-time [minimum of 12 units] and make normal progress towards their degree. Please call the International Center [949.824.7249] if you have any questions or need to discuss a specific situation.
Enrolling Below 12 Units
Immigration law does allow a student to enroll in less than 12 units if they are experiencing academic difficulty due to improper placement, English language challenges, or other academic reasons. However, the student is allowed this benefit only one quarter. Please see below for more information.
Transferring to Another School
Students may request a transfer of their SEVIS/immigration record to another U.S. school. Please advise students to contact the International Center immediately to ensure that we can assist them in transferring their SEVIS record.
