CIE personnel are recognized by the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS). Our services include helping foreign students and scholars maintain legal status and comply with regulations pertaining to legal employment in the U.S. In addition, CIE offers ongoing workshops on relevant issues pertaining to immigration law.
Currently all advising is via Zoom or Email.
