Re: Consideration of Former F-1 Students from Tri-Valley University for Enrollment
One, they can file for reinstatement as students on Form I-539. The suggestion seems to be that this should be done electronically, since we were directed to the http://www.uscis.gov/e-filing website. Implicitly required, although this was not stated by the SEVP representative, is that the reinstatement be in connection with attendance at a different school, since Tri-Valley is no longer viable in the view of DHS.
Two, former Tri-Valley students can voluntarily depart without any action on the part of ICE.
Three, former Tri-Valley students can report to ICE to be processed for voluntary departure.
