DHS Issues Proposed Rule to Eliminate Duration of Status (D/S) (9/25/2020)

DISSA is aware of proposed changes published on Friday, September 25, 2020, to change the period of admission and extension of stay rules regarding F-1 students and J-1 students and scholars as well as dependents.  DISSA plans to submit comments to the Department of Homeland Security advocating against these changes which will be burdensome to students and scholars.  Penn State is working with several higher education organizations in advocacy efforts.
