F-1 Students

The F-1 student visa is a temporary non-immigrant visa that is issued only to students who are qualified to pursue a full course of study at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS).  Immigration Services works closely with GSBS to issue visa documents and to advise and assist international students in maintaining visa status throughout their degree program at UMMS.
