As such staff and faculty who do not hold one of the above mentioned designations should not;

- try to interpret immigration related rules or regulations
- advise students based on their own experience
- direct students to resources other than the International Office.
Please be assured that any students referred to Amanda will receive the appropriate assistance or referral.
