Visa Status

If you are currently “in-status” under an F or J visa, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) must be notified when an international student transfers from one U.S. institution to another. If you are admitted, UTPB will provide a Transfer-In Form that will need to be completed by the previous U.S. institution and submitted to UTPB to release the active visa information for update. However, if a student is “out of status” with USCIS, that student should reinstate him/herself with USCIS prior to enrolling at UT Permian Basin.

Questions regarding a student’s immediate immigration status must be directed to the international student advisor. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the correct visa and to maintain the appropriate immigration status while in the United States. International students should refer to, carefully read, and make sure the conditions of the visa, noted on the back of Form I-20 or DS2019, are understood before signing the form.

Full-Time Requirement

Holders of F-1 student visas and J-1 sponsored student visas must enroll for a full load of study. The minimum course load for undergraduate students is 12 credit hours per semester. If the student does not plan on enrolling during the summer semester, the full-time enrollment should be 15 credit hours per semester. The minimum course load for graduate students is 9 credit hours per semester.
