February 2017 -- Important Information and Resources Regarding Executive Order on Immigration

On Friday, January 27, President Trump issued an Executive Order suspending entry into the United States of immigrants and nonimmigrants from seven countries—Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen—for the next 90 days. The Executive Order may also impact travel and visa application process for students who are not from those seven countries.

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services is here to support our PSU community regarding the impact of the immigration ban and new regulations on our international students. We understand that the Executive Order may be of concern to many in our campus community, and we invite you to refer to these resources whether you are a PSU student, faculty or staff.
