July 2021 Updates:
Registrar and International Students Services
Registration opens this month! Please read the following information, due to COVID19 there have been important changes to our registration process for Fall 2021:
- Registration opens July 19
- Registration closes Aug 6
- In order to safely return to classes in Fall 2021, CIAM needs to know how many students will be in each class so classrooms can be properly prepared. This means that registration will now have a deadline. Please make sure your register for classes before the deadline.
- Students who do not register before the deadline (8/6/2021) will be unable to register for Fall 2021 classes until the add/drop period (8/31/21), and will be subject to late registration fees.
- Late registration fee has been increased to $100
- Late fee for missing the tuition deadline has been increased to $100
- The late registration fee will be charged to anyone who registers for classes during the add/drop period from Aug 31 to Sep 17. (Including students who change classes, get dropped from classes and then re-add classes, and students who miss the registration deadline) This policy does not apply to any registration for INT501 or INT599.
- The late fee for missing the tuition deadline will be charged to any student who does not pay their tuition by the appropriate deadline. Sep 1 for current students on the payment plan or Aug 30 for current students paying by term.
Fraud Advisory – Scammers Using SEVP and HSI Phone Numbers to Target International Students
The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has been made aware of a spoofing scam involving individuals using an SEVP Response Center (SRC) phone number (703-603-3400) or a Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) office phone number (757-441-6533) to target nonimmigrant students. Fraudulent callers are claiming to be SEVP representatives and asking students to provide their immigration information, such as their Alien Registration Number or Form I-94, “Arrival/Departure Record,” information, or face deportation.
Tips and items to remember:
- NEVER divulge personal or financial information to unknown callers.
- SEVP officials will NEVER ask stakeholders to provide credit/debit card/gift card numbers, wire transfers, or bank routing numbers, or to make bitcoin deposits for any purpose.
- Report all suspicious calls to the HSI tip line.
- Contact your DSOs at CIAM if you receive any of these phone calls. We will help you verify the identity and validity of a call from SEVP officials by confirming with our designated SEVP field representative.
