F-1 Student Information



Welcome to UAMS!  We are excited that you have come to complete your program of study with us. Visa rules and regulations can be confusing and overwhelming.  We want to make your stay as stress-free as possible!


We are here to help you throughout your program of study when it comes to your current and future immigration status.  We also want to assist you once you have completed your program and are ready to continue your experience here in the U.S.

In these pages you’ll find information for New F-1 Students, employment information for the time during and after your studies, as well as letter requests and forms that will be helpful throughout your stay here.

We are here to help you focus more on your studies but to be a tool if you need our assistance or have questions about your visa status.  We are also open to any suggestions that you might have regarding this site and other information you would like to see included so please don’t hesitate to contact us with any information you would like to see on our site.

We are located in the Graduate School which is located on the 2nd floor of Administration West on the UAMS Campus.  We are open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday – Friday (excluding holidays).  Our phone number is 501.686.5454.

We hope you have a great experience at UAMS and are excited about your experiences here!
