Options will include that to depart from U.S. without an otherwise possible bar to re-admission in future

United States immigration authorities on Wednesday asked the 1,555 students of California-based Tri Valley University (TVU), which has been shut down on charges of visa fraud affecting hundreds of Indians, to contact them directly to find out the options they have.

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has taken further steps to ensure that SEVP [Student and Exchange Visitor Programme]-certified schools and former Tri-Valley students have the information that they need to make informed decisions in light of the ongoing investigation,” its spokeswoman, Lori K. Haley said. ICE has posted an advisory on the SEVP link on ICE's website — http://www.ice.gov/sevis/tri-valley-110118.htm — to direct students how to contact an SEVP representative to obtain information about their options.
