Description (no more than 300 words)

The US immigration system is complex and difficult to understand. Get an introduction to general terms and concepts, the journey international students navigate to come to NYU from abroad, what requirements they're subject to, how and when they can potentially work, and latest information to understand how students are affected by the current immigration debate. Participants will be given sample immigration documents for review. A few international students also will briefly share their experiences in areas such as obtaining an I-20 and student visa, crossing the US border, and answer questions you may have on the process. This session is intended to help NYU staff, faculty, and administrators better understand legal aspects of the international student experience.

Please fill out this event registration to confirm your RSVP to this year's IEW Intercultural Communication Workshop. Please join us Thursday, November 21, at 11:00 in Wasserman's presentation room B. The workshop will last approximately 90 minutes. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
