International students are subject to many complex immigration laws and regulations that relate to their legal status. It is the responsibility of each student to know and abide by the law in order to maintain valid legal status. City College is not responsible for ensuring that students maintain legal status. Students can obtain a list of immigration rules and requirements in the Admissions Office.
