USCIS Proposes Fee Changes Impacting International Students

The Department of Homeland Security proposed a rule change on January 4, 2023 that could affect UW students – those who are applying for OPT and STEM OPT or those who are applying to change their status within the U.S., or submitting reinstatement applications. The proposed rule is currently open for public comment through 03/06/2023.

We encourage people interested in submitting public comments to review the Frequently Asked Questions and proposed rule in the Federal Register.
