Have questions about new immigration policies?

UO is carefully tracking changes in immigration rules since the Executive Orders on January 27, March 6, 2017, and September 24, 2017. We realize that many people in our community are quite concerned and need a one-stop location for answers to the most common questions about this changing situation. For questions about changing federal immigration rules and UO support for our international community, please review the FAQs.
