The Office of International Student and Scholar Services will host an information session Friday, July 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. in Snyder Memorial Room 1350 to discuss the Department of Homeland Security’s recent decision to designate Nepal for temporary protected status.

The presentation will be designed and tailored for UT Nepalese students (and their dependents) who are considering applying for temporary protected status. Topics of discussion will include the benefits of applying for the status, eligibility requirements, and how to apply.

A lengthy question-and-answer session will be held for students to ask how the temporary protected status may affect their current and future nonimmigrant status in the United States.

Dayna Boes, immigration coordinator, and Peter Thomas, associate director of the Office of International Student and Scholar Services, will lead the presentation.

Those interested in attending should RSVP here by Thursday July 9.

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services encourages attendees to indicate specific questions on the RSVP form to ensure that the presentation is tailored to its audience.

As a courtesy service, Office of International Student and Scholar Services staff will provide support and resources to students wishing to apply for temporary protected status and will offer the passport photo service free of charge to those who apply.
