Rights and Responsibilities for F/J Students
- You must be enrolled in a full course of study each Fall and Spring semester at Rhodes. If you drop below a full course of study you will violate your visa status. A student, in limited circumstances, can obtain permission to be enrolled less than full-time. Check with an advisor first!
- You cannot work outside of the college campus without permission from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If you work outside of the college campus without permission, you will violate your visa status.
- If you change your living address, you must inform Rhodes immediately. If you don’t inform Rhodes of your address change, you will violate your visa status.
- If you violate your F-1 or J-1 visa status, the United States government will consider you to be here illegally. Once illegal, you could be subject to arrest or deportation.
The Buckman Center will answer any questions you have about your visa status.
