Back in July 2011, following article was posted in Happy Schools Blog
Herguan University is was listed at #4.
Guess what, after 1 year, Herguan University is Raided.
Herguan University SEVIS Status Revoked
Following was posted in ICE.gov site about Herguan University.
Based on federal regulation, Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-certified schools are subject to a review of their certification at any time.
On Aug. 2, pursuant to a review of Herguan University’s certification, an SEVP representative served Herguan University school officials with a notice of intent to withdraw the school’s SEVP certification and Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) access.
Herguan University nonimmigrant students have two choices:
- Continue to attend classes, or continue to work at the job for which they were authorized Optional Practical Training, and maintain their active status in a manner required by regulations, or
- Transfer to another SEVP-certified institution.
If Herguan University students cannot attend classes and maintain their active status in a manner required by the regulation, or if they are unable or do not wish to transfer to another SEVP-certified institution, they must depart the country without prejudice within seven calendar days.
Temporarily, school officials will not have access to SEVIS. Therefore, they cannot manage nonimmigrant students’ records in SEVIS. Herguan University nonimmigrant students should contact SEVP just as they would contact their designated school official to report any changes. This needs to occur so that students’ SEVIS record and Form I-20 can be updated accordingly.
Once a Herguan University school official has access to SEVIS, school officials can recommend nonimmigrant students conduct a change of status, but nonimmigrant students must notify U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) about their change of status. Also, nonimmigrant students must also file a Form I-539 to change their nonimmigrant status with USCIS.
Nonimmigrant students who have questions about their options should call the SEVP Response Center at (703) 603-3400. This number is staffed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday.
Students who call the SEVP Response Center should be prepared to provide the following information:
- First and last name
- SEVIS ID number
- Telephone number where you can be reached
- Email address
