As a land-grant institution, Colorado State University has always committed itself to supporting any student with the ability and motivation to earn a degree. In light of the recent Executive order on Travel Restrictions, the Office of Admissions would like to reaffirm that commitment to all students, especially our international students.
The Colorado State University administration is closely monitoring the situation and there are a number of student resources available:
- The Office of International Programs will provide more information as it becomes available. Read more about the travel ban and how it might affect the Colorado State community here.
- Our International Student and Scholar Services staff is working closely with all students impacted by this executive order. Please contact ISSS within the Office of International Programs at 970-491-5917 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to meet with an adviser if you have questions about the travel ban.
- We will continue to connect any of our impacted or concerned students with legal resources, either through CSU or through independent entities. Student Legal Services has contracted with an immigration attorney and will start offering consultations soon. More information about this new service will be provided soon via ISSS news and other campus sources. Several non-CSU organizations are also providing ongoing analysis including the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Immigration Law Center, and the Council on Islamic American Relations. None of this constitutes legal advice – for that you need to consult a licensed immigration attorney – but these resources may be useful to impacted students.
Any international student that is currently affected by the travel ban is encouraged to reach out to the Office of Admissions for help. Our admissions counselors are ready to help however we can and will protect all personal information to the fullest possible extent.
