Life After Graduation

Not only do we want you to be successful while you are at NIU, we also want you to be successful and reach your goals once you leave us.  So once a year we bring an immigration lawyer to campus to help you learn more about what happens after you graduate from NIU.

Topics include: new OPT regulations, an update on all immigration regulations, the process of applying for your H-1B worker visa, and general discussions on permanent residency and green cards.

Our goal through this workshop is to make sure students have a clear understanding of various immigration issues that may impact them when they leave NIU.  We want you to get our information from a trusted and reliable source.  Your friends and the internet can be a good place to start, but this session helps remind students that every situation and every case with the government is different, so it's good to know the facts.
