Maintaining Your Status

Berkeley International Office (BIO) provides advising for BIO-sponsored F-1/J-1 status students and F-2/J-2 student dependents, J-1 scholars and J-2 scholar dependents, and H-1B employees. It is the responsibility of each student, scholar, and employee to be familiar with the immigration requirements related to their lawful status. Contact BIO with any questions regarding maintaining your BIO-sponsored F/J student, J scholar, or H-1B employment-based status. If your student, scholar, or employment-based documents are sponsored by a 3rd party, please contact your program sponsor for informaiton about properly maintaining status.
