Legal Issues: Students and Scholars

In addition to keeping your immigration documents and status in good order, you should familiarize yourself with your rights and responsibilities as a non-citizen of the United States so that you are able to respond appropriately to any contact initiated by a U.S. governmental authority. For an outline of your rights, please see  the Public Affairs and Religious Liberty website at www.adventistliberty.org and the American Civil Liberties Union website at www.aclu.org.
