You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view any pdf files. It can be download for free from the Adobe website.

You should always familiarize yourself with your legal rights. The UMass Lowell International Students and Scholars Office has a Know Your Rights webpage that will help.

Travel outside of the U.S. is strongly discouraged because reentry is never guaranteed. We recommend that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney prior to any travel outside of the U.S.

USCIS no longer issues Advance Parole (AP) travel documents.
