Tax season is approaching. Please be waiting for important details on the upcoming information session.

Our office partners with Arkansas Asset Builders which is a nonprofit organization that specializes in assisting international students with their taxes. We will be providing an important information session on your responsibilities when filing your taxes by Executive Director Mrs. Joiya Yorgey. After you attend the information session you can participate in the tax workshops for step-by-step instructions on filing your taxes.


  • If you are planning to or have changed your immigration status please let our office know. This will help ensure your information is correct in UCA and immigration databases.
  • VISAS - you do not have to renew your visa unless you are traveling outside the U.S. AND your visa has or will expire before you return. Having an expired visa does not prevent you from working, getting a Social Security card or driver's license. F-1 students must have a valid I-20 at all times to maintain their legal immigration status.
  • F-1 STUDENTS - check the program end date located on page 1 of your I-20. If it ends in May 2023 but you need more time to finish your degree, please email Pam or Sarah
