Changing from Nonimmigrant to Permanent Residence Status

There are steps you need to take when you change status (known as “adjusting status”) from a nonimmigrant status (such as F-1, F-2, J-1, J-2, H-1B, H-4, etc) to Permanent Residence (PR) status.

Students

  1. If you are working on campus, contact your I-9/Payroll Administrator in your employing Department to show your original permanent resident (green) card and do a new Form I-9 online to update your visa status for Payroll purposes.
  2. Contact the Admissions Office regarding resident-rate tuition issues.
  3. Send a copy of your permanent resident card to [email protected] so we can update your student codes in the University record system (Peoplesoft) and terminate your SEVIS record, if applicable.

Employees
