IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: This NOT an official UIS webpage. It is being administered by interested faculty, staff and students for the purposes of helping answer questions about complex matters around immigration. Because of the continuously-changing nature of immigration law and policy in the current day, please bear with us as we try to keep abreast of new developments!

And if you have a legal issue regarding immigration of your own – don’t just rely on the advice here. You need a lawyer! Every case is different and general information can’t provide you with information specific to your situation.

This webiste and the videos contained on it have been supported by the College of Public Affairs and Administration as part of this year’s Dean’s Engagement Series.
